Pets

AFDC leagues, tournaments & events take place all across Atlanta. Pets are generally allowed at AFDC events with exceptions and limitations as follows:

  • Pets are only allowed in accordance with the law, local ordinances, and rules & regulations of the venue
  • No dogs classified under OCGA § 4-8-21 as “dangerous” or “vicious”
  • No dogs that have been individually banned

City of Atlanta dog rules vary by field. Be aware of specific field site policies before you arrive.

Georgia Soccer Park does not allow dogs in the park. Please leave your furry friends at home when playing here.

Dogs may be banned without notice or hearing at the discretion of the league commissioners or the Board of Directors. Reasons for banning a dog may include, but are not limited to: acting aggressive towards another dog or person, attacking or injuring another dog or person, behavior that disrupts the event or where the owner disregards reasonable requests by other captains or the commissioner to restrain the dog. The ban over the individual dog is for the duration of the dog’s life unless otherwise stated.

Best practices

  • Clean up after your dog!
  • Dogs should be leashed up away from the field of play or sideline in reach of other players’ bags
  • Dogs should be able to sit quietly while leashed & unattended and display no signs of anxiety while away from its owner or while discs are in the air
  • Dogs should not be aggressive with other dogs or people

We have had to ban dogs from all AFDC events in the past due to owners not abiding by these rules. Please respect these rules for all pet owners in the AFDC!

Incidents

Be aware of your dog at all times. Any incident of dog aggression is the responsibility of its owner and should be reported by the owner to the league commissioner or event coordinator. Dog owners or players may report any incidents of aggression or repeat violations of this policy to the AFDC at info@afdc.com.


Equipment

For safety purposes, we do not allow any players to participate in a game barefoot.

AFDC is happy to have a partnership with Georgia Soccer Park and we are committed to helping preserve this great facility. Accordingly, players may be required to wear turf cleats or sneakers during games at this location. If so, this will be communicated to players in advance by league commissioners or event coordinators.
