Umpires

Umpiring at Morialta

As a growing club we are always looking for umpires. For each home game during Winter we require 2 umpires.

Morialta supports the development of young umpires by providing mentors where possible. If you are 13 years OR over and interested in umpiring, please contact the club via the Contact Us link on the Home page to discuss how you can earn some extra pocket money umpiring for the club.

This button takes you to a “live” umpire roster which reflects any changes to the schedule (marked in red). You can visit this link at any time to check where you are umpiring each week. Make sure you look at all three locations.

Morialta Senior Umpires

Senior umpires are available to provide mentoring and feedback to junior umpires.

Please contact the umpire coordinator, Sandy Barker, to discuss opportunities for support.
