It’s all five stars at Sawtell FC

December 3rd, 2020

Many clubs in North Coast Football Zone have invested heavily in 2020 in taking their clubs to the next level by joining the National Club Development Program.

The program run by Football Australia, formerly Football Federation Australia, and Football Northern NSW provides clubs with an on-line development platform that allows them to answer a series of questions regarding all facets of their football club. 

In North Coast Football Zone, Sawtell was the first to obtain a five-star ranking. Nambucca joined them recently by reaching the highest level. Boambee, Coffs Tigers and Coffs United have reached the four-star stage, and several other clubs have started the process. 

The program specifically aims to:

  • Improve processes and controls of affiliated community clubs
  • Assist member federations and governing bodies to better support clubs
  • Improve the efficiencies of the sport
  • Establish benchmarks of success across Australia
  • Improve player retention

The NCDP is an enhanced version of the previous National Club Accreditation Scheme (NCAS), introduced in 2012.

The topics covered within the program are by an on-line resource library that provides clubs with the tools to up-skill and offer assistance from their governing body.  These resources will develop over time with the continuing input from all levels of football.
