USAFL Umpires are invaluable volunteers who give their time to ensure that the league has professionally run games. Without the umpires, the games would not exist. It is important that these individuals become and remain accredited and that they are available for all USAFL games. An investment into the development of USAFL Umpires is an investment into the development of this great game across the United States. All donations are tax deductible!
