Trialling is a sport which may be enjoyed by people of all ages. Our members come from all walks of life and number amongst them not only those who work farms but also professional people including, health professionals, educators, and tradesmen.
Competitors and judges participating in VYUFDA trials must be VYUFDA members. In addition to being able to participate in trials and other activities affiliated to the Association, members receive a quarterly newsletter throughout the year. Although newsletters are the source of a variety of information including forthcoming events, trial results and other topics of interest, members are encouraged to visit this website regularly.
To become a member please complete the online membership form (see link on this page).
The form requires you to provide two current VYUFDA members as references for your application. If you
do not known two current members, please contact the secretary who will put you in contact with a representative
within your zone
It is preferred that payments to the Association are by bank transfer.
As soon as your application for membership has been accepted and the subscription processed, your membership number will be posted here
You will not be considered a financial member until the process is completed.
Interstate Competitors wishing to trial in Victoria
For Interstate triallers and Judges, there is a category of membership allowing them to participate in trials in Victoria.
People who are full members of either NSWYDA, SAYDA or other state organisation will not be charged a fee, BUT they must apply for Interstate membership and upon acceptance will be issued a membership number. To apply, please complete the Online membership application form (see link on this page) selecting the Interstate member option.
Being a member of NSWYDA, SAYDA or any other state does not mean you will automatically have your membership application accepted by the VYUFDA.
Interstate members will not be eligible for awards such as High Point Dog of the Year.
Queries may be directed to treasurer.
Victorian Members wishing to trial interstate
VYUFDA members wanting to participate in events in other states may apply to the relevant state for reciprocal membership. Reciprocal membership varies from State to State, and the basic processes are as follows:
New South Wales: Like Victoria, visitors to New South Wales will be required to complete a temporary membership form and have that application accepted. The NSW temporary membership form is also available online on the NSW Yard Dog website via the following link
South Australia: Visitors to South Australia will be bound by its Code of Conduct by signing the trial entry form. Nothing further is required by South Australia at this point in time.
The above arrangements are only available to people with a current full membership in their home state. Each state reserves the right to accept or reject the application. Failure to provide accurate information in relation to an application will result in an application being rejected or the membership being terminated.
