Warrnambool & District Football Umpires Association


Latest News


Just sending out a quick note to wish everyone all the best for this weekend in the footy (both Hampden and Warrnambool & District)

We have several new faces umpiring their first game (good luck, I'm sure the work you and your coaches have put in over the pre-season will pay dividends), some people umpiring for the first time with the WDFUA, but not their first games of footy and quite a few returning familiar faces to umpiring (another year older but the passion for the game doesn't diminish).  To all, good luck.

To all umpires this weekend, please be proud of the work you have put in over the pre-season as this will not only help you on Saturday but will be the base for the coming season.  Good luck and go well.

Can I please request that all umpires wear black arm-bands whilst umpiring on Saturday.  Over the summer, unfortunately some past members and life members of the association passed away.  There was also personal tragedy which directly impacted members and past members of our association.  These people form part of the history and the story of the WDFUA and as a sign of respect, I ask that we wear black arm bands this weekend.

Our first social function is this weekend (6/4) being our usual opening round casserole tea.  Can I please ask that all those who will be attending, either respond via return email (or via the Facebook post which has been sent out).

Additionally, a couple of house-keeping issues:

- Can we please ensure that we are all wearing the appropriate uniform to games - WDFUA polo for seniors and WDFUA hoodie for juniors.

- If you are making your own way to games (out of town), please ensure that you have made contact with your driver (or the coaches - they can pass on the message to the drivers).

Again, good luck on the weekend, remember that we are there to do "a job", but we should also have fun.



This has been mentioned before at training. PLEASE make sure you name is in unavailability book by the end of training Monday so appointments can be planned accordingly.

In the contact section of the website are all our coaches contact details are on there plus the new WDFUA text phone and our email.
