Luca Bisogni back from National School Champs
The event ran from the 11th to the 17th of August where Luca Umpired a total of 10 games displaying his dynamic abilities in Field, Boundary and Goal umpiring.
Luca umpired a range of age groups from U12s-U16 with one of the highlights of the trip being selected to umpire the Girls U16 Grand Final.
“The experience was overwhelming and unique and is proving valuable in my development as an umpire” Luca told AFLNRJ. “The standard of play was incredible forcing myself to lift my game as an umpire to keep up with the high speed play”
Luca feels the experience enabled him to master new umpiring techniques including learning how to better position himself, how to hand control over to another umpire as well as rule clarifications.
He looks forward to bringing the experience of the Championships back to the Northern Rivers to assist the umpiring group with their 2014 umpiring campaign.
