The 2010 season saw the commencement of the state-wide rollout of the Quality Club Program (QCP)
The concept of the Quality Club Program is to provide an opportunity for all community football clubs in WA to achieve a minimum standard of club administration and to recognise and reward clubs for achieving the base standard through to standards of excellence.
Through the Quality Club program, clubs will have the opportunity to achieve the following levels:
Bronze – a level to recognise good club administration.
Silver - a level to recognise excellent club administration.
Gold – a level to recognise exceptional club administration.
BENEFITS TO CLUBS
Creating a quality environment is of enormous benefit to football clubs as a whole and all of its members. Some of the benefits of being involved with this program include:
Providing an atmosphere that will help to attract new participants, officials and members (& retain those you already have);
Once completed the clubs are assisted by the WAFC to complete the process by providing the documentation/evidence to support their status.
