Forrestfield United selection process for Junior NPL

Forrestfield United are the newest Junior NPL Club in Perth. We have a well establish academy in which all of our 1st teams competed in the Metro Div 1 in 2017. We have a Club Technical Director, Junior Technical Director and we have “C” licensed coaches in every age group. We will be holding selections for our NPL teams over the next six weeks. Please see dates below. We would like to invite players who live in the City of Kalamunda & surrounding districts, otherwise known as the eastern corridor, to attend.

Our selection process is open to anyone who would like to come along, but we will only be selecting our NPL teams. Players who are not selected for this team will be invited back to the club in January to be placed in our development squad and other teams.

The following players are welcome, and based on ability, priority will be given in this order:

1. Returning Forrestfield United players who have played for our club in 2017.
2. Players who live in our catchment area, have played for Forrestfield United in the past, but have left to pursue an NPL pathway with other clubs, as up to now, we have not been able to provide that pathway.
3. Players who live in our catchment area, who have not played for Forrestfield United before, but are currently pursuing an NPL pathway with other clubs outside of our area.

Selections will be conducted by a panel of coaches and our Technical Director and Junior Technical Director. Selections will be conducted in an open and transparent way.

Our aim is to provide an NPL pathway for all players of that ability in our area. We do NOT want to encourage players who live outside of our catchment area to leave their current clubs and travel great distances so that they can train and play for Forrestfield United. We believe in regional centers of excellence and for kids to play for their local/regional clubs.
