What are the uniform requirements for an umpire?

Field and boundary umpires are expected to purchase an on-field set of shorts, shirt, wristbands and socks with the set of cards. Acme Thunderer whistles are the only acceptable whistles to be used. Field and boundary umpires are also expected to purchase a polo shirt and jacket to wear to and from games. Goal umpires need to purchase a shirt, rain-proof jacket, trousers and cap to wear on-field and a polo shirt to wear to and from games (if cold, goal umpires can wear their rain-proof jacket to and from games). There are flags available to purchase if goal umpires do not have them. To try on sizes and order, an umpire can visit the Sports Centre at 745 Port Rd Hindmarsh. To see what is available, visit this link.

What is the process for making a complaint about an umpire's performance?

Contact Umpiring Manager Colin Rowston via email ( or phone (0434 547 904). Make sure the complaint contains legitimate concerns about an umpire who goes against what is expected of them (expectations can be found in the Umpires Manual or in the Umpiring Interpretations Video which are released at the start of each year). If the complaint is seen to be pointless whinging, it will not be taken seriously.
