About the Junior Football Umpiring Program

The AFL Queensland Junior Football Umpiring Program (JFUP) involves all umpire training, education, support and ongoing development for our Brisbane Junior club based umpires officiating U8’s – U10’s. Club Umpires must be 12 turning 13 in order to be a part of the program.


Tailored to meet the umpire’s needs, the JFUP provides:

·        Initial and ongoing training through the year

·        Content relative to experience – sessions broken into first year and second year + club umpires

·        Training sessions located close to home to minimise travel requirements

·        Session content aligned to specifically to the fundamentals of umpiring, and the junior modified rules.
