Other special awards as follows:

- Rik Fowler (father of Coen and Jared) received the Brett Rogers Goal Umpire Award. This award is given to the 2 best goal umpires umpiring the Year 12 Grand Final.
As an umpire you are paid for umpiring games, however being an umpire does requires training and our boys train an additional night to their footy training at the club. Umpire Training usually occurs every Wednesday during the season between 6 - 7.30pm and new umpires are welcome to attend at any time.
The SDJFUA are currently looking for new Umpires, so if you would like to give umpiring a go, contact Glenn Tunstead on 0400 835 305 for all the information or check out their website.
