AFL Victoria is pleased to announce the Ferntree Gully Eagles Junior Football Club has been awarded Gold Level Accreditation for the 2010 season under the AFL Quality Club Program.


This accrediation is awarded to clubs who can demonstrate they manage football club environments that are conducive to fun, safe, fair and importantly, inclusive.


The club has undertaken a number of initiatives that not only highlight the professionalism of administrating the football club, but also focus on player education and welfare and programs that engage the local community.


AFL Victoria Community Football Development Manager Peter McDougall said it was imperative that a club could demonstrate that it assisted club members outside of the normal football expectation.  "Congratulations to the committee and players of the Ferntree Gully Eagles Junior Football Club for setting a benchmark for other football clubs," McDougall said.  "Obtaining the gold level accrediation, after successfully securing bronze and silver levels, demonstrates that the club is fully committed to providing the community a safe haven to enjoy their footy."


The accreditation is a terrific endorsement for the work carried out by the committee, and the first club to receive this level of accrediatation in the Eastern Football League (EFL). 


The Ferntree Gully Eagles Junior Football Club considers this award as a positive reflection of the 'Team Effort' at the club generally; the support from all of its sponsors; and the connections and affiliations with the EFL, Knox Council, Victoria Police, the senior football club, other local sporting groups, and the local community.


The AFL Quality Club Program was introduced in 2005 by AFL Victoria and has now been adopted by the AFL to be a national program.
