The initiation and implementation of the FFA’s inaugural National Curriculum facilitated great change within High Performance programs throughout Northern NSW in 2009.10. One of the National Curriculum’s most significant initiatives was the mandating of a 1-4-3-3 playing system. NNSWF, with great support from all Member Zones imposed the endorsed playing system on all representative teams participating at National Championships and in the State Youth League. The introduction of the Curriculum, playing system and “building blocks” were supported by technical presentations throughout Northern NSW by FFA and Northern NSW Football staff, headlined by FFA Technical Director, Han Berger, making two presentations to leading elite coaches in Newcastle. Changes to the FFA National Championships playing format and the formation of Technical Committee (at Under 13 Level) provided a critical analysis of NNSWF’s adjustment to the 1-4-3-3 playing system; this was most evident in the Under 13 girls team who finished top of the table at the conclusion of pool matches, however, were relegated to second following the technical review, whilst NNSWF’s boys finished equal third on points and following the technical review were elevated to finish outright third. It was unfortunate that the Technical Committee was not implemented at the higher age groups as this provided an excellent performance review for both coaches and players. NNSWF’s performances at Nationals were

a credit to the preparation of both coaches and players, with a number of players selected for the prestigious All Stars teams and National teams. Northern NSW Football – FFA National Championships results 2009.10 Age Group

The Northern New South Wales Institute of Sport (NNSWIS) program under the leadership of Head Coach Wayne O’Sullivan was restructured as a result of increased funding of $50,000, which enabled the appointment of Peter McGuiness as part-time Assistant Coach, employment of professional staff in all aspects of player welfare and the establishment of a permanent office and relaxation room for players at the University of Newcastle. Playing targets were met with the boys finishing fourth overall in the NBN U/23 State League and two athletes selected in the Joeys Under 16 squad and a further two offered Jets Youth Scholarships. Four other NNSWIS players also represented the Jets Youth Team throughout the season.

The NNSWIS Girls Program was also restructured with the upcoming 2010.11 Westfield W-League “front of mind”. The NNSWIS Girls will play as a team for the first time in the new Under 17 Colts League in 2011. The Emerging Athlete Program (EAP) was expanded to include a second girls team that competed in the Inter-district Under 13 boys competition, whilst the Under 16 EAP girls participated in the Herald Women’s Premier League finishing third before bowing out in the semi finals. It is pleasing to advise that five of the girls have transitioned to the NNSWIS Girls Program for 2010.11. The Boys EAP team participated in the NBN State League Youth Competition, which proved to be an excellent grounding for the players’ development; from this group six players have been offered full time scholarships in 2010.11 NNSWIS Program. FFA Technical Director, Han Berger, conducted two advanced coach education sessions in Newcastle, whilst Assistant Technical Director, Alistair Edwards, ran a similar seminar in Lismore. All professional development sessions were very well attended and provided a great insight into the objectives of the National Curriculum. A thorough review of NNSWF’s elite youth player development and competition structures was conducted in 2010. The review provided a range of stakeholders with an opportunity to contribute towards the establishment of a number of recommendations which were endorsed by NNSWF’s Board of Directors in July.
