Welcome to 2024 and the SMJFL Modified Rules Competition

Club Volunteer Umpires are responsible for officiating all Under 8, Under 9 and Under 10 age group matches.


This role being performed by an accredited adult whom the players know, makes it easier for them to play the game and learn the rules in a low stress environment. Club Volunteer Umpires also know how to apply the modified rules which these age groups play to.

Thank you for volunteering your time as a Club Volunteer Umpire – your role is an important one, and we have many resources to help you do your job. 


Handbooks and rules to download are available on this page.

Club Volunteer Umpire training sessions are returning in 2024. Stay tuned for more details.

Code Of Conduct
The Code of Conduct is embedded in your registration. Please ensure you read it carefully before signing.

Club Umpire Competition Match Report (CMR) - Must be submitted by 9PM MATCH DAY
It is the responsibility of the HOME team’s umpire to submit the online version of the Competition Match Report (CMR), as soon as possible after you finish umpiring. Your club will be fined if you do not submit this form by 9pm on match day. 
CLICK HERE to enter Modified Rules Competition Match Report (CMR)

Please input data CAREFULLY, as wrong clubs, dates, and round numbers are time consuming to correct. Check the data on each page before submitting it. There is a drop down list of registered umpire names to select from. If your name, or the other umpires name is not listed simply select “NOT LISTED”. The SMJFL will contact with the club to find out why the Umpire is not registered.

NO Best & Fairest votes are required for modified rules matches
If you experienced any problems during your game with other officials or clubs please call Doug Haworth on 0490 495 079 on match day.

Uniform is the Bright Yellow shirt provided by your CLUB. Please check with your club (not the league) if you haven’t got one yet.
