In Vic Country there are no ladders, finals or best and fairest.

The most important aspect is it is "Football for Fun".

As such the following is the Vic Country Philosophy and Guidelines;


1. Egos are to be left at home.

2. We should recognise good performances and applaud the efforts of both teams and umpires.

3. The game is played for fun and enjoyment by all.

4. Disputing umpires decisions or abuse of any umpire is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

5. On field and off field fighting, violence or bad language is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

6. We obviously need far more players to get through a season than can take the field at the start of any given match, and while every player will be given the chance to play, selection cannot help but be influenced by paid membership, attendance at training, participation in club activities and duties and willingness to travel to away games.

The above does not mean that players who cannot train or play regularly will not be welcomed and get a game, however they must be prepared to accept and understand our priorities, just as we understand that at our age there are a variety of factors that prevent some players being available each week.

7. Not withstanding point 6, every effort will be made to give all players equal time on the ground.

8. Hospitality to visiting teams is very important.

9. Masters Australian Football recognises the importance of involving our families in our activities and will continue to make a conscious effort to do so.

10. New players are always very welcome, but should be made fully aware of the Philosophy and Code of Conduct and adhere to what is requred of them as a representative of the club and Masters Australia Football.

Remembering at our age, it is not how many games you win but how many games you play.

For that reason we have modified rules and modified attitudes to playing in order to minimize the risk of injury and keep us enjoying our great game longer
