2019 Assessment Survey - Results

51 respondents completed the survey, representing approximately 71% of members registered with Hunter AFL Masters in 2019.

A PDF report of the survey results can be found below or by clicking this link, with the raw data located in the appendix.

Individual comments in the survey have been removed to protect the anonymity of participants.

Broadly, the report raises the following points:

  • The survey suggests that internally we are strong as an organisation, while our weakness is in our external relationships.
  • The survey can provide a foundation to create a strong identity around, such as outlining what we stand for in a Mission Statement, etc. This will allow us to create subsequent documents, such as a Sponsorship Prospectus. So we may need to go backwards before going forwards.
  • We need to make sure that we keep doing what makes us strong internally, such as good communication, low fees, a good social side to the club, etc.
  • We need to improve our relationship with external stakeholders, such as sponsors, HCC AFL, and the HCC Clubs. The committee is now currently working with the HCC AFL as a priorty.
  • The Committee is now working towards a range of actions to be taken as a result. We will report these to the members in due course.

If you have any comments you would like to make about the survey, please don't hesitate to chat to one of our committee members. 

Hunter AFL Masters - Footy for Fun!!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all the members and friends of the AFL Hunter Masters. Have a safe time over the holiday period we look forward to joining you all again for the AFL Masters 2019 Season.

AFL Hunter Central Coast Social Football

G'day Everyone,

You might be aware that the BDAFL has now been replaced by a new local AFL competition called the AFL Hunter Central Coast (AFL HCC) for 2019 and going forward. As was initiated last season under the BDAFL, the AFL HCC intends to run a social comp next year for older players. The basic arrangement is likely to be:

Play every 2-3 weeks with gala days utilised also

16 players on the ground - 17 minute quarters - Interchange (prob unlimited in numbers) Min age of 32 but 2 (prob) players down to 28 y.o. permitted AFL Masters code of ethics to be employed.

Last season four team from the central coast participated in the social comp and the AFL HCC is hoping teams from Newcastle area will also join next year. Hunter AFL Masters has again been asked to participate.

At this time, we are seeking expressions of interest from you to gauge whether we will have the numbers to enter a team. We intend to run our usual club AFL Masters calendar/draw regardless of whether we participate in the social comp. That means our club members/players would have the opportunity to play both Masters and social comp or either, depending on how the draws work out. There will likely be additional cost for players wanting to play both.

 We don't know at this stage what other Newcastle clubs will be entering teams.

Could you please contact our secretary asap whether or not you are interested in playing in the AFL HCC social comp with Hunter AFL masters in 2019? (no commitment at this stage)

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all the members and friends of the AFL Hunter Masters. Have a safe time over the holiday period we look forward to joining you all again for the AFL Masters 2019 Season.
