Shane Hill

Shane heads up our Umpiring and Community programmes.

He has helped our members to develop umpiring across the region since 2010. The quality and number of umpires regularly officiating matches of Australian Football in Europe has increased as a result.

In 2015, he also started to focus on our Community initiatives. He assists members to engage with the wider local community through Australian Football. He is in regular contact with our members to help Australian Football in Europe grow in a structured, united and respectful way.

Shane started umpiring local competition in Australia in 1996 and has been involved with Australian Football in Europe since 2007. He is a former member of the VFL Umpiring Academy.
