Ever thought about becoming an umpire?

The AFL’s Green Shirt Program is an umpire education and development program that aims to use experienced umpires to mentor new and inexperienced umpires.

Under this program new and inexperienced umpires wear a green coloured shirt to signify that they are learning their craft and are being supported by a mentor in a similar fashion to a learner driver displaying ‘L’ plates on the road.
