Development Leagues

NSFA offers two development leagues to provide association players with a high-level community football experience – Super League and Diamond League.

These leagues act as the top division of community football in their respective age groups, enforcing a minimum standard of coaching and training sessions per week.

Coaches will also be further supported by Ed Ferguson, NSFA Community Football Manager, through coaching workshops and the INSPIRE program.
