If you can please bring with you drills and hand tools, 
You never know what we may need!

If you know of anyone who may want to help please bring them with you...

Community Discount Card

The Altona Juniors are looking for local businesses and merchants to get on board our next big thing! 

The AJFC Community Discount Card is in its infancy development stage and needs your support to get it off the ground and ready for sale by round 1.

The concept:
Local businesses offer the card holder purchase discounts (printed on the card), two for one deals, free entry, free coffee with every breakfast for example, to those who hold a card from the Juniors. There is no outlay cost to the business. Businesses have full control over their offers and redeeming conditions. Your discount offer is a great tool for networking, generating local spending traffic and encouraging community support.
All profit from the purchase of these cards goes directly back into our club. The generous businesses enjoy increased spending and income from the new customer traffic.
If you are interested, or know someone who might be, please contact Naomi, Nadine or Melinda.

Looking for a rewarding experience?
The Junior Vikings are looking for a couple more coaches for the 2017 Season.

1 x Under 8's
1 x Under 9's (Due to the large number of excited Under 9's, we need a 2nd Coach for a 2nd Team!)

- Support will be provided and even 2 People can team up and share the position!
- Please Contact our Club President, Vito Rubino on 0418 394 662 or email him at

**The Coaches role for these younger age groups is really rewarding and there is no pressure! It's all about getting the kids out for some fun and to learn the game of Football**
