The Five Pillars of Success
Maximising game time for every player.
As a core product of NSFA, Competitions plays a significant role in enabling NSFA to deliver a positive community football experience to our membership. We look to put our competitions first and adapt to our membership to provide them football the way they want to play football.
Community Football Development
To foster long-term connection and engagement in football.
Community Football Development is integral to ensure NSFA supports our community clubs and volunteers by building their capabilities and future-proofing the region as capacity increases. We strive to put the player first in our decision-making.
Developing future football.
Our Pathways pillar relates to the pathway opportunities for players, coaches and clubs to be the best they can be. We see it as our purpose to achieve long-term development by offering modern, innovative and best-practice opportunities to our members.
Building for the future.
We must prepare for the future of football, whereby we are predicted to surpass 20,000 winter registrations by 2026. Our efforts must be towards future-proofing the region to ensure football continues to be the cornerstone of our community.
Marketing and Communications
Building the brand.
The NSFA is rich in football and we intend to celebrate the success both on and off the park. Our communications will be the voice box of NSFA activities and share the success of our members. Through our communications, we will instill a football culture unique to Australia.
