All designed to keep you engaged, educated, active and healthy, and most of all motivated about umpiring.

Registered YRUA Umpires also have access to our Training Portal...
An online resource that hosts the National Umpire Coach Accreditation Scheme, National Umpire Accreditation Scheme, National Umpiring Curriculum, forums and workshops. By demonstrating good character, elite potential and a clear desire to maximise your umpiring talent, you may be eligible for selection to the AFL Umpiring Academy. By being an elite umpire, you can progress to higher levels of football, travel around the state or country and umpire in carnivals and exhibition games.
Elite Umpires from the YRUA, have every opportunity to transition to VFL ranks and beyond. The next batch of potential AFL umpires is assessed under the Talent Identification Program.
The AFL Umpires National Talent Identification Manager observes State League umpires throughout Australia and short lists possible AFL umpires for the 'Umpires Combine' held in October annually. These umpires are tested physically and psychologically during the three day combine, before the National Talent Identification Manager, in conjunction with the AFL Umpires Coaches, selects the next AFL umpires.
If you want to umpire some amazing football, then the YRUA & AFLOE can help you get to the top!
The AFL Development Program has been created to prepare the country’s best State League field umpires for the requirements of umpiring in the national competition.
