Saturday Fixtures

If you have an umpiring duty on a Saturday it is important that you do the following:

  • Sign on at the Downey Park desk at least 10 minutes prior. (Even if you are only "ON CALL", you still need to let the Downey Park officials know you are there 10 minutes before).

  • If you are umpiring straight after you play, please sign on BEFORE you play.

  • If you can't make your game for unforeseen circumstances or you're running late, call or text the Umpiring Convenor or even send her an email so Aspley can avoid a fine.  Note: If inadequate notice is given and a fine incurred, this will be passed onto you - sorry!

Downey Park are requesting that for the first few games all umpires alert the teams and parents to their no tolerance umpire abuse policy. 

The easiest way to do this is to call the captains over while they're doing the toss and tell them to let their team, coaches and spectators know that Downey Park has a no tolerance policy towards umpire abuse and that all instances of abuse will be dealt with accordingly. 

If you have any concerns with the teams or divisions you are umpiring, please see the Umpiring Convenor.
