The AFL Queensland Umpire4Fun program involves all umpire training, education, support and ongoing development for our Queensland club based umpires officiating U8’s – U10’s. Club Umpires must be 12 or above in the year they register in order to be a part of the program.

Tailored to meet the umpires’ needs, Umpire4Fun provides:

  • Initial and ongoing training through the year
  • Content relative to experience – sessions broken into first year and second year 
  • Training sessions located close to your club to minimise travel requirements
  • Session content aligned specifically to the fundamentals of umpiring, and the junior modified rules.


Umpires receive free of charge:

  • An umpiring uniform (paid for by SPAFC)
  • An Umpiring Manual – outlining everything umpires need to know
  • Match payments per game
  • $20 for experienced U4F umpires – with 5 or more matches umpired
  • $10 for trainee U4F umpires – with 4 or less matches umpired


Initial education block starts early March located at venues across South East Queensland. Follow up education will be shared amongst clubs in practical umpiring & mentoring during club training sessions. Details of these dates & times will be posted regularly throughout the season.  

Umpires may also attend any of the AFL Queensland League Appointed Umpires training sessions throughout the year to help develop their umpiring.
