Umpires and Linesmen - Fines being imposed

Hello All

 

Please be aware that any team or club that does not provide linesmen and umpires will be fined $500 per game for not providing 3 officials after their game that are at least 18 years of age. 

 

We have already noted multiple teams who have failed to provide team officials and will be sending their clubs their reduced stipend based on them failing to provide umpires and linemen. Clubs who do not receive stipends this year will have their 2016 stipend reduced. 

 

Many thanks
