  • Details ... :- 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.
  • Details ... :- 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.

    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.
