NPLWA Review


Football West launched an extensive review of its National Premier Leagues WA competitions in 2017 to develop a comprehensive framework to serve the game over the next five years.

Input is sought from players, coaches, referees, volunteers and club officials through various means, including surveys, face-to-face interviews, community forums and group workshops and meetings.

A Project Reference Group, which will drive the Review, includes Standing Committee representatives from the NPL, State League, Amateurs, Women’s and Juniors, as well as Football West staff and external representatives from Netball WA and the Department of Sport and Recreation.

A series of surveys will be available online from Friday, March 31 until Wednesday, May 17, 2017.

A Board-Appointed Sub-Committee, consisting of members of the Football West Board and Management and a Football Federation Australia representative, will meet regularly and provide written updates to the Board.

Consultants have been engaged to develop a consultation plan, conduct stakeholder meetings, facilitate the Project Reference Group and draft a Review Report and recommendations.

The NPL Review will consider league structure, the relationship between junior and senior clubs, administrative demands, sustainability, player mobility, coaching qualifications and governance.
