Chad Takes a Break!
25 Oct 2023
The WANFLUA would like to congratulate the career of WAFL Goal Umpire Chad Smith, who has decided to step away from the panel to pursue personal goals and continue travelling the globe.
Since joining the panel Chad made an instant impression with his attitude and willingness to improve not just himself, but the people around him, proving a great mentor to the younger members in the group.
Chad’s resume at such a young age is impressive, umpiring the 2021 & 2022 WAFL League Grand Finals, selection in the AFLW competition and a leader of the High Performance Group. Chad also featured in the National 18’s championships early in his career.
Chad has expressed his interest in rejoining the panel in a few years, and we know the group will welcome him back with open arms whenever he does.
Congratulations Chad on what you have achieved so far and best of luck in the future!
