Rockingham City to take part in elite junior competition
Rockingham City Football Club has been accepted to join the Junior National Premier Leagues competition.
The provisional arrangement has been set up to provide RCFC with the prospect of being able to support the Junior NPL concept in WA and promote soccer to the elite level.
The RCFC had submitted a com- prehensive Junior NPL application to Football West and would ensure all coaches and committee followed the FFA national curriculum and continued to focus on youth development for many seasons to come.
Football West chief executive Peter Hugg commented on the level of professionalism and patience shown in developing the RCFC’s application and the extent to which the club had embraced the Junior NPL set-up.
Mr Hugg said the RCFC had realised the need for an elite pathway and NPL status in the region and hoped to become a leader in the program as a result of the hardworking coaches, players and staff.
