The standard of Australian Football played in Sweden is at an all time high. As playing standards have increased, there has never been a greater need for leagues to nuture, develop and retain dedicated field, boundary and goal umpires. Better local umpires will ensure playing standards continue to improve.
Together with AFL Europe we can offer pathways to enable new umpires to gain a fundamental understanding of the Laws of the game and to develop to the level of their desire and aptitude. Our aim is to ensure umpires enjoy their role in the game. Ideally we would love to develop elite-level umpires right here in Sweden, but we think it is important to help all umpires - first gamers, developing, and experienced - reach their full potential.
