Major Sponsor of the WFUA
Welcome to the Wimmera Football Umpires Association Home Page for Season 2016
The Wimmera Football Umpires Association (WFUA) is an independent umpiring association affiliated with WorkSafe AFL Victoria Country. Our umpires officiate in football matches in the AFL Wimmera Mallee and AFL Western District regions each week throughout the 2016 season.
The WFUA has umpired football across the Wimmera and Mallee ovals for in excess of 50 years.
Currently, the WFUA has approximately 50 active members across all disciplines of umpiring - Field, Boundary and Goal.
Our members train at Dudley Cornell Park (Gertrude St) in Horsham on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6.15pm (from late March until the end of the football season). Thursday nights include on-field training followed by an off-field coaching session including discussions, whiteboard and other multi-media resources. This is followed by a meal at a small cost.
During pre-season, the umpires undertake their own individual training from November through to January and then train together at a time and venue to be advised. Please contact the Secretary for further information (see below).
The WFUA gratefully acknowledges the support of our sponsors including the
Priceline Pharmacy Horsham
Bennett Rd Milk Bar
Wimmera Trophies& Gifts
Drew Heard Bus Service
Any prospective members are warmly invited to come along and join in at a training session.
