The Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley Football Club (MBVFC ) has become the sixth Football Far North Coast (FFNC) club to achieveNational Club Accreditation.
The Football Federation Australia (FFA) program that was first established in 2012 is aimed at providing member clubs with a framework to enhance club activity.
Grassroots football represents close to 90% of football participation in Australia and sound organisational structure is recognised as being fundamental to driving participation opportunities and experience.
An initial four tiers of accreditation are designed to exist, with MBVFC joining Bangalow SC, Dunoon United FC, Eureka FC, Nimbin Headers FC and Level TWO accredited club Alstonville FC, as member clubs in the zone to have embraced the process.
FFNC general manager Steve Mackney said that he would like see all 26 member clubs in the zone achieve at least Level One accreditation and invites interest from clubs to do so.
‘Northern NSW Football has two club development officers, in Gary Fisher and Ross Hicks, who will willingly help member clubs through the straight forward process to achieve accreditation’, said Mackney.
‘Congratulations to Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley FC for the enthusiastic manner in which they have progressed football in their area and for achieving Level ONE club accreditation’
