Welcome to the East Gippsland Umpires Association website.

We officiate in the Gippsland League (GL), East Gippsland Football Netball League (EGFNL) and Omeo District Football Netball League (ODFNL) in East Gippsland. We have around 70 Central, Boundary and Goal Umpire appointments to fill every weekend. 

Our training ground is located at the Bairnsdale City Oval, entrance is via Macarthur St. 

Training for 2017 has commenced, which is held on Wednesday nights from 5.45pm for a 6pm start on the track.

When the home and away season starts, these nights will  incorporate fitness and skills training, a theory session and the appointments. A trainer will be available and a canteen will operate with basic hot food and drinks. The night finishes by 8pm.

PLEASE NOTE - as of MONDAY 3 APRIL a second training night will commence. This will be an informal session for fitness only, from 5.45pm for a 6pm start, for an hour.

We have an exciting mix of young and young-at-heart umpires and pride ourselves on our commitment to Country Football. We enjoy a great working relationship with all clubs which we provide our services to. We offer a mentoring program to new umpires to help them progress along the umpiring pathway with many of your young umpires progressing through to VCFL and VFL Umpire Development programs.

Graham Hunt has abeen appointed the Director of Umpiring for 2017. He can be contacted on 0456 225 244 or eguadirector@outlook.com
