Important changes in FootyWeb - Password Management from: Tony Costanzo, National Footyweb Manager
This Memo seeks to clarify for all stakeholders precisely what changes have been made to the Password Management area in Footyweb and importantly why.
Background Historically League and Club Administrators could access passwords in a readable format for any members that existed in their Footyweb database. The rational was so that a League or Club Administrator could provide a member their username and password to re-register themselves online via a Registration Form.
Change Under the Privacy Act, organisations must ensure that they have strict security measures in place to protect member privacy and all their associated data. As a result, we’ve changed the Password Management section in Footyweb to ensure member passwords can no longer be viewed by any Administrators and are kept private.
Some members have recently raised privacy concerns that their passwords were able to be accessed by Administrators and were uncomfortable with this as in some cases individuals use the same password for many of their other online systems (e.g – banking). This is a valid concern and we’ve made this change to ensure we protect the privacy of all our members moving forward.
New Process The principle way members will now be able to access their username and password is by recalling it themselves in the online registration form to their email address. The majority of members in Footyweb do have valid email addresses so this will be the most efficient process for all stakeholders and will provide the best means of ensuring the members privacy is protected.
For members who don’t have an email address, Club Administrators have the ability to temporarily reset a password in the Password Management section under “New Password” by clicking “Update Passwords”.
In the coming weeks we anticipate this process will become even more efficient when “Member Dashboards” is released and individuals will be able to change their username to their email address and reset their password to whatever they would like.
Whilst the timing of these changes is not ideal, I hope you can appreciate the rationale behind it and If anyone has any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me anytime.

Ground Inspection, Defib Battery Check - Hi All,
this is IMPORTANT
When agreeing that appropriate first aid facilities and equipment are available -
Vic Metro require you to have a working defibrillator at the ground
as part of that compliance. There are fines for non-compliance
(If you have a Defib, good idea to have it at all your Home Training Sessions too)
Note: It’s been about 5 years since we initiated the use of defibrillators,
the batteries are usually good for about 5 years
So – check your defibrillator batteries REGULARLY
Cheers… Bruce Chaplin
The insurance company JLT is developing a Phone App called
The JLT Sport AFL Match Day Checklist App
This App is a pre-game inspection tool for evaluating potential injury and accident causes on and around the player and public areas.
It allows club officials to identify safety concerns and record any actions required to address these concerns.
Download 2014 JLT Match Day Checklist [170kB]
During the season, it is hoped the Match Day Checklist will be done on your phone, and submitted directly to JLT on game day. For Vic Metro, unless anyone can show good reason why not, we will expect that all match day checklists are submitted using this app. This will eliminate the need to keep a piece of paper for 7 years.

Commemorative Jumper for Wolf Steensen - Hi All, some of you may have known Bruce 'Wolf' Steensen, former-President of QLD for 9 years. Please read below and support if you can.
frmom: Bruce Chaplin - AFLM VicMetro President
From: Derek Delany - 17 March 2014
Subject: Wolf Steensen Commemorative Jumper
Gents, It is now some 25 days since Wolfie lost his life. Fortunately, in one respect, he was in a sound financial position, so his parents and family are keen for us to support the One Punch Can Kill (OPCK) campaign in any way we can.
As a first step in a planned program of fundraising and commemorating Wolf’s life and contribution to AFL Masters, Gary Mitchell is co-ordinating a commemorative jumper for Wolf of which a photo is attached. The OPCK logo will be added to the jumper. All the jumpers will have number 8 and are sleeveless, and come in Small (90cm), Medium (95cm), Large (100cm), XL (105cm), 2XL (110cm), 3XL (115cm) and 4XL (120cm). The cost is $75 and all proceeds will be donated to OPCK.
There is only one way to order these jumpers and that is by emailing Gary at email@example.com by Sunday March 30, 2014 with your full name, Masters footy club/State (if applicable), postal address and size(s) required.
Payment can only be done electronically by depositing $75 into MAFQ, Bank of Queensland, 124060 – 91279617. Please use your full name as the reference.
Gary will close the list off the next day and place one order for all those that have paid. There will be no stock on hand for later orders.
It would be appreciated if you could distribute this email to your clubs straight away to maximise the orders for these jumpers. There will be a commemorative game later in the season, possibly Parrots Vs Wolf’s and this jumper may be needed to get a game. The QLD President will also buy a beer to anyone at the Adelaide carnival who buys one of these jumpers. Please email Gary if you have any queries.
Thank you for your support of this worthy and relevant cause.

• Website Update (GC) – A company has been appointed to do the site. The company that was chosen from the two who made proposals are players from the league.The basic architecture has been done.
Work is being done with SP to link our website and their system, though it’s quiet a menial task.

Players can also register for Carnival online, through online store.
Merchandise will be available through the store.
Any additional functions (golf day etc.) can be paid for in store.
Accounting software is being changed to Xero as this works better with the online shop. Xero has the capacity to issue receipts.
• Competition Director (CS) – Finalise division 1 and 2
We have been advised that Hallam cannot field a reserves team which means the Division 1 will need to be re-done.
The question was also asked of clubs, as the criteria is to field a supers and reserves, do we now move Hallam back down to division 2.
Voted - yes
Division 45’s, as there is no longer a Northern and Southern split, do we want to move from 45’s to 47’s, or stay with 45’s?
Voted - stay at 45’s
50’s fixture to be done ASAP, once other fixtures have been finalised.
• Paperwork Paperwork was left at the front door for clubs to collect.

Changes are: National Registration Scheme, players now need to register in SP before they can be added into clubs as players. This is a one off registration.
By players registering themselves, it covers insurance terms and conditions, and there are other required fields that need to be completed for purposes of AFL and their funding. The privacy act is also covered.
• General Business – after SP training, - None
