Club Development

It is an objective of Capital Football to Develop Community Football in the ACT and Capital Region through strong clubs.

With the assistance of Football Federation Australia and the ACT Government, Capital Football is implementing the National Club Accreditation Scheme (NCAS).

The overall aim of the NCAS is to raise standards and to recognise and reward quality clubs, which ultimately contributes to quality football experiences for players, volunteers and parents.

Fundamentally, clubs play the key role in the development of football in Australia. In order to raise the overall standard of club administration at all levels of the game, a clear model that identifies and recognizes best practice in all areas of club administration will be rolled out across Australia.

For a brief background on the themes and criteria of each level of the NCAS click here.

All documentation, including application fortms and templates for the NCAS can be found on myfootballclub:

Capital Football is providing case managers for each of its affiliated clubs to assist with the accreditation process.
