A presentation took place on Tuesday 4th February at Crawford Park, Alstonville. Representing Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) was Chief Executive Officer David Eland, along with Mal Impiombato representing Football Federation Australia (FFA) and Bill Coulter representing Football Far North Coast.
The process of achieving this accreditation involved collaboration with NNSWF Club Development Officer, Gary Fisher, towards meeting criteria of Teams Entered, Club Management and Governance, Child Protection, Accredited Coaches, Safety and Risk Management, Promoting Positive Behaviour and Future Planning.
As part of the Future Planning component, Alstonville implemented their own Member Protection Policy, Club Development Plan and a comprehensive Coaches and Managers handbook.
