MF Technical Director
To apply for their Youth Development Licence and initiate the audit process it will be
the responsibility of each NPL Club to submit to the Member Federation Technical
Director their Youth Development Licence Approval Form by January the 31st, every
season
The Licence Process
Each NPL Club Youth Development program will have an audit inspection
undertaken twice per year. The first audit will be prearranged; the second will
be random.
The structure and processes of the youth department will be scrutinised at
these inspections and they will be expected to comply with the protocols set
out in this resource.
From the initial audit a report will be generated outlining any areas of concern.
To secure and maintain their Youth Development Licence, clubs will be
expected to address all areas of concern and associated issues resulting from
the audit
process within the timeframe stated within their report.
The Licence Process
The second visit will determine if areas of concern have been addressed and
standards have been met/maintained and compliance achieved. The FFA,
through its Member Federations will undertake the audit and compile a report
summarising the areas of compliance (or non – compliance) for each club and
the relevant licencing body.
It is a mandatory component of the NPL Criteria that clubs maintain their Youth
Development Licence.
No NPL club will receive an inspection without submitting the Youth
Development Licence Approval Form.
Any club, which is not audited twice in any one season may lose its Youth
Development Licence or be sanctioned.
The Licence Process
The National Premier Leagues Structure will operate under the FFA guidelines
and therefore it is necessary for all clubs participating in the WA NPL to meet
the Youth Development Criteria as set out by the FFA in detail in this document
Licencing Although the initial NPL Licence may be granted for a period in excess
of one year, the Youth Development Licence criteria will granted and audited
annually. The initial period of audit will be season 2014 for Youth licences to be
issued in September 2014 to come into force for season 2015.
Criteria If for any reason the NPL Club does not meet the criteria required by
September of each year then the offending NPL Club will be deemed not to be
meeting its licensing obligations and as such may lose its licence to participate
within the NPL or be subject to sanctions.
