Team App VKR notifications

Greetings MBK Member!!


As of the 1st of January 2017, the VKR will be changing the method of event notifications to all VKR clubs.  They will be using an mobile phone app called Team App as their primary form of communication.  All club members will be required to register to the VKR’s page on this app.  


The instructions to do so are below.

1.  Download Team App (www.teamapp.com/app) onto your smart phone/PC/tablet.

2.  Launch Team App on your smart phone/PC/tablet.

3.  Sign-up to Team App.  You will be sent an email to confirm your registration.

4.  Log in to Team App and search for VKR Australia to become a member.

5.  Fill out the Member Details section and select the relevant Access Groups.

6.  A VKR executive committee member will approve your membership.

7.  You will start receiving announcements directly from the VKR, rather than the club secretary - me.


When filling out the Member Details section, you should select which Access Groups you wish to join (this will be Iaido General Members, Jodo General Members or Kendo General Members).  You may join more than one Access Group.


Please note that entering your birth date and health details into the member details section is NOT mandatory.  If you have a health condition that you wish to disclose to the VKR executive committee in case of an emergency, it is up to you to do so.

Member details are only visible to the VKR Australia Team App administrators a.k.a. the VKR executive committee.


If you do not wish to register on Team App, yet still want to get notifications from the VKR, you can opt to have them emailed to you instead.  To apply for this, directly email the VKR secretary at secretary@kendovictoria.asn.au so you can be included in the app.  

In the application email that you send, please include your name, email address, whether you are doing iaido/jodo/kendo, emergency contact details.  Team App notifications will be sent to your nominated email address.

Currently, this will not change how notifications from Melbourne Budokai will be sent to you, i.e. for now emails will still be used.  However, we will be looking into setting a similar page on Team App in the future.


REMEMBER, IT IS UP TO YOU TO DECIDE HOW YOU WANT NOTIFICATIONS FROM THE VKR TO BE SENT TO YOU AND TO TAKE THE APPROPRIATE ACTION.  THIS IS NOT SOMETHING I CAN DO FOR YOU.


That said, please let me know also so it can be noted in our membership database.

If you do not make a decision you won’t get any notifications from the VKR.

Naginata members will not need to do anything….unless you’d like to get notifications from the VKR….in which case I would suggest registering as doing kendo??  Hmmmm….

Please let me know if you have any questions.


Cheers and thanks in advance.
