Barnsley United gain Level 1 FFA National Club Accreditation

May 31st, 2018

Last week, Barnsley United FC officially received and gained their Certificate of Achievement – Level 1 Accreditation in the Football Federation Australia (FFA) Club Accreditation Scheme.

The club now joins 33 other Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) clubs who hold the Level 1 Accreditation status and will now receive benefits such as:

• Direct guidance from FFA and Member Federations  to Football delivery

• Bringing together all elements of Game Development including coach education, volunteer development, refereeing, small-sided football, good governance and the National Curriculum.

• Attracting sponsors and volunteers

• Increasing credibility in the community

• Priority access to any future funding opportunities through FFA

 

NNSWF Club Development Officer Phillip Andrews was pleased for Barnsley and that more clubs should begin to embrace the National Club Accreditation Scheme (NCAS).

“The NCAS is accessible to all football clubs with the objective being to raise standards amongst clubs,” Andrews said.

“It’s also there to enhance the football experience for players as well as volunteers and parents.”

 

The process for clubs to become accredited is now simpler than ever.

Step 1: Club downloads application form

Step 2: Club gathers required documentation to support application

Step 3: Member Federation and Club work to finalise application

Step 4: Application submitted to FFA for assessment

Step 5: FFA advises club and Member Federation on success of application and sends Certificate and Logo.

FFA will then assess all applications and provide final endorsement for the accreditation. There will be two application windows where FFA will accept applications from Member Federations for clubs within their region.
