Our Mission & Vision
At Riddell, our mission is to provide umpires of the highest quality to football in our district. Our goal is to train umpires to reach the best of their abilities and then provide them with the forum to turn it into a career.
To achieve our mission we engage some of the best AFL umpiring coaches available. These coaches play a crucial role in our success in developing some of the best umpires in the country.
We pride ourselves on our high-quality training facilities and venue. A recent $13 million dollar upgrade has made our facility one of the best of it’s kind.
Our facility includes:
- A full-sized, fully illuminated (to local competition specs) football oval
- A secondary full-sized (irregular shaped) football oval
- A 1068m2, two-story, state of the art sports pavilion which is used for umpire theory sessions and indoor training
- 4 changerooms to facilitate both ovals as well as separated changerooms for umpires on gameday
- A designated car park and spectator mounds
