FFA – Whole of Football Plan
Football Federation Australia recently launched their “Whole of Football Plan” aimed at driving the sport forward over the next 20 years. The plan is intentionally ambitious, and sets out clear goals.
-FFA will introduce online modules to support grassroots coaches, alongside a ‘network of mentors’ within clubs, and a ‘network of educators’ throughout districts.
-A National Facilities Strategy will be developed, starting with a detailed needs analysis. At Tuggies we are keen to take part in this!
-Referee recruitment will focus on people with ‘football common sense’, which means players and ex-players.
-A Women’s National Premier League will be established in every region. This is something we are very excited about.
-Elite development programs will complement club programs instead of being an alternative. Our most talented players will play for clubs and receive extra training from ‘National Development Centres’.
