Watch this space...

Works have begun on the Renovations!

We're excited to see some progress to the club rooms underway, it's been a long time coming! 
The AJFC ask that you be careful around the grounds during this phase and be respectful of the games going on during this time.
It might be a nuisance to walk "the long way around" to get where you're going however, please avoid going on the ground during game play to take a short cut. 
It is for your safety as much as the Players and Umpires.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!

STOP. One Punch Can Kill.
With 4 wins this week, we are about to
break the $1000 mark...

Did you lose some money??
An amount of money was found in the old social rooms after the Good for Footy night with Caleb Daniels. If you misplaced your cash and would like it back, please contact Naomi Redpath, Administrator via email
You will need to be specific in your description.
(What is the money in and how much?)

Have a great week Vikings!

U15 Girls Team Building Night

On Friday night, Abbey Brown (U15 Girls Coach) held a Team Building Night.

Abbey organised the night, which included activities to help the girls continue to learn about themselves and their team mates. The activities fostered building trust and learning about each other’s strengths and goals.

Abbey worked on helping the girls to feel empowered and to help each other as they tackled some important teenage issues.

Abbey and the girls had a great night!
Well Done Girls!
