Welcome to the VAFA Umpires Association!

The VAFAUA is the association for umpires within the Victorian Amateur Football Association competition. Based in our rooms at Elsternwick Park, we work to create a safe and fun environment for all members, to progress the interests of umpires in general, and to promote umpiring as a key part of the football landscape.

With strong support from the VAFA community, a great team of coaches and a culture dedicated to helping every individual to become the best they can be, the VAFAUA truly is ‘The Place to Umpire’.
