The Riversdale Soccer Club (RSC) is a Community club in Melbourne’s Eastern Suburbs. The following policy relates to how our club will deal with the National Premier League (NPL) platform established by FFA:
- The purpose of the NPL is to establish ‘elite’ pathways for footballers in Victoria. As a result, the football landscape is now principally occupied by either NPL clubs or Community clubs
- RSC are and expect to remain a Community club and we are not affiliated with any NPL club
- RSC will make its junior coaches aware of the NPL model and the NPL objectives.
- Decisions to re-locate to or trial for an NPL club will be solely a decision for player and/or parent
- RSC will not use its membership database to advertise any NPL club, their programs or NPL events, for example trials.
