Questions & Answers about being an Umpire in the YJFL


The Yarra Junior Football League Umpire Department provides umpires for all Yarra Junior Football League matches from Under 11 up to Youth Boys (Under 17.5) and Youth Girls (Under 18).

It also provides boundary umpires and some goal umpires in the older age groups where numbers permit.

There are four training venues for all the umpires.

Umpires are expected to attend training regularly at one of these venues. Training continues weekly until up to the Grand Finals played on Sunday 3 September 2023.

  • Umpires are required to check in via the QR code supplied at venue (manual check in will also be available).

  • Please bring your own water bottle and whistle
