Kendell Ball continues to lead the way as WA’s female leading flag waver since joining our team in 2003.
She is now an integral part of the female umpiring team at WAFL and two weeks ago, officiated in her 100th League Game.
Lauren French recently travelled to Melbourne as our State representative at the Nationals 18’s championship and her performances were outstanding.
Lauren is in her seventh season and has umpired 40 league games.
Sally Boud joined our team six seasons ago and has shown enormous potential in her 14 league games to date.
The achievements of our WAFL female goal umpires are fantastic and I am proud of them all.
Boundary rider Donna Brown joined our team four years ago and umpired her first league game at the commencement of the season. Donna has had a great season having already umpired 10 league games.
Donna has an incredible fitness level and terrific attitude and we look forward to having Donna around for many seasons to come.
Last but not least is field umpire Amy McQuade. Amy joined the Michael Ball Talent Academy in 2011 and has umpired 15 Colts games. Amy has officiated in numerous female championships.
All of our umpires receive great support from our Fitness and Medical support staff.
Holly Shawcross does a great job as our Strength and Fitness coach and she is assisted by Hannah Roderada managing the rehabilitation of injured umpires. Kylie Hansen is our Head Medical trainer.
We are also fortunate that we work in partnership with Darryl Chat who manages the health and wellbeing of our AFL Perth based umpires.
The achievements of our WAFL females umpires and female support staff is fantastic and the West Australian Football Commission Umpiring Department is proud of them all.
