Selection of Players

Capital Football NPLW and NPL clubs will be asked to consult with their club coaches to provide recommendations to the NTC Challenge coaching staff. The coaching staff will also be actively scouting throughout the NPLW and NPLY competitions for talented players to represent the region at the NTC Challenge.

Following recommendations and scouting players are invited to trial for positions within the NTC Challenge Squad, with final selections being made by the coaching staff in consultation with the Capital Football Technical Director.

In 2020 the age group will be U18’s Girls, meaning players born on or after January 1st, 2002 will be eligible to represent Capital Football at the NTC.
