Dogs at Training

We understand your Dogs are part of the family but we kindly ask you to be mindful when bringing them to training or games. We have a unwritten rule about no dogs which we would like to bring to your attention. Unfortunately, last season we had a couple of incidences that were unsavory, so we recommend walking your dogs away from the children training and waiting on the boundary. They must remain on their leash at all times. Alternatively, We encourage you to leave them at home. 

We would appreciate your understanding regarding this matter.

Vikings Committee Members 

Our last note today is regarding our Committee...The Club would like to bring to your attention that the Committee volunteer their time and effort to running the AJFC and are often running households, working and fitting in other activities for their families. They are not employed by the Club.
Members attempt to reply as quickly as they can to all enquiries but we ask that you please be patient in waiting for a response. Many of you don't realize the Committee are working hard and long hours behind the scenes to keep it all running smoothly!
The AJFC welcome any one who would like to help share the load of running the Club we love. We would appreciate consideration when following up your enquiries. Alternatively, most answers can often be found online, via social media, website, WRFL and sporting pulse, though we are happy to help!
If you would like to help with operations, please email 
Naomi Redpath, our "AWARD WINNING Admin Extraordinaire"
