As we finish out the 2017 calendar year, consider allocating some of you charitable contributions to the Washington Junior Australian Football Club, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit tax-deductible charity. The WJAFC runs one of only two youth Australian football programs in the United States. The Saturday Morning Footy program has been running continuously since 2006. The program is provided for free to boys and girls aged 5 to 15. Over the years, the program has taught the rules and skills of the great game of Australian football to hundreds of boys and girls in Arlington and the DMV. Many Australian army and foreign affairs families have participated as well as current and former US military families. We have had US cabinet secretaries, foreign correspondents and NFL players participate in the program. Insurance and field costs run to about $25 per player. All our coaches and administrators are volunteers.
A donation of any amount will help immensely.
The Gershman family has generously offered to MATCH dollar for dollar all donations to the program between now and December 31.
The 2017 Winter Camp is Saturday December 2. The program will begin at 9.30am and run until 11am. The clinic is free for boys and girls aged 5 to 15. There will be fun games and activities to teach the skills and rules of the great game of Australian football. The kids session will be followed by a coed non-contact game for adults! Parents welcome.

The USA sent 4 teams to Melbourne, the USA Revolution men's team, the USA Freedom women's A team, the USA Liberty women's B team and the USAFL Umpires. Saturday Morning Footy was very well represented. Coach Jay Levesque played for the Revos, coach Karen Stablein played for the Liberty and Freedom. On the umpire side, Coaches Chris and CJ Adams worked as field and boundary umpires in the tournament. Coach Sid Caeser worked as a goal umpire.
