NEW NAME - NEW LOGO - WELCOME TO OUR NEW LOOK
We're thrilled to announce our new name, NEPEAN FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION INC. which was formally adopted by our member clubs at the Association's Annual General Meeting held on 19th November 2013.
Following extensive community consultation, the new name, which was clearly identified as the preferred name by a majority of stakeholders, was submitted for the consideration of the membership at the Annual General Meeting. The decision to change our name to reflect the wishes of our members was fully supported by all delegates present at the AGM.
In our community consultations held throughout 2013, we also asked our stakeholders for suggestions for a new logo. Overwhelmingly, stakeholders responded that they wanted to see the following elements included in our logo - must haves were identified as: a football, our Red & White colours, our geographical features & our name, or an acronym of our name.
We were thrilled to be able to unveil our new logo at the 2013 Annual General Meeting. The new logo delivers all that our members asked for.
We'll be taking on the task of changing over to our new branding over the next month or so, starting initially with our domain name/s, email addresses and stationary, and moving onto uniforms, banners and other signage over the coming months.
We'd like to thank all those who took the time to respond to our community consultation surveys and we hope that our football community will embrace the new look of the Nepean Football Association.
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING UPDATE
Published 20th Nov 2013
The Association's Annual General Meeting was held on 20th November. Along with the exciting news of our new logo and name change, we also dealt with the business of electing new board members to our board and considered four applications for affiliation of new clubs. Below is a brief update on the business transacted at the AGM
THE MANAGEMENT BOARD
Six nominees contested for four positions of the Association's Management Board. The four successful nominees were:
Dale Witchard (returning board member)
Richard Bray (returning board member)
Sue McNally (returning board member)
Rick Cortese (new board member)
The association is pleased to welcome back Dale, Richard & Sue, and is especially pleased to welcome Rick Cortese to our hardworking management team. Rick brings a wealth of Community, Business & Committee experience and knowledge and we look forward to working with him in the coming two years. We hope that our clubs will give him a warm welcome too.
The 2014 Nepean FA Board
Back Row - Jim Bradley, Richard Bray, Dale Witchard, John Churchward (President) & Rick Cortese
Front Row - Frances Refalo, Sue McNally (holding a copy of our new logo) & Dianne Skuthorpe
The association received four applications for affiliation. Our affiliation process requires a majority of members to support an application in order for the applicant club to become affiliated. Of the four applicant clubs, only one was admitted to membership, that club being Nepean FC.
NFC is a wholly owned entity of the Nepean FA. Their regional youth league teams take part in competitions conducted by both Football NSW and also play one year above their age group in Division 1 competitions conducted by our Association. Affiliation was a requirement in their continued participation in our Div. 1 competitions. A large majority of clubs showed their approval of this model of representative participation by supporting NFC's affiliation. A warming indication that our clubs give their full backing to our Representative Wing.
Applications by South Creek FC, Katoomba Rangers FC & Hawkesbury City FC were not supported by the membership.
NAME CHANGE & LOGO CHANGE
As reported elsewhere on our webpage, the members moved to adopt a new name for the Assocaition, dropping the 52 year old Nepean District Soccer Football Association Inc. in favour of a Name that is in keeping with our national and state authorities, our new name will be Nepean Football Association Inc. A new logo was also unveiled to the members at the AGM
Member clubs were provided with copies of Annual Reports from Board & Management Staff Members, summaries of the Associations activities thoughout the 2013 year and a full audited report of the Assocaition's Financial Affairs. A summary of the Annual Report will be made available on our website at a later date.
NEPEAN REFEREES GROUP
Date Published 06Nov13 15:00pm
A new era begins:
2014 is an exciting new era for soccer referees in our region. The Nepean District Soccer Football Association has recently announced the establishment of the newly formed Referees group headed up by a team of dedicated people.
The new Referees group will be headed up by Graham Chapman, himself a veteran football (soccer) referee with over 30 years of refereeing experience. Recently he spoke addressing all of the local Nepean District clubs and was very focused on what goals he wished to achieve in the opening years of the new Referees Group being established.
“I am very excited to take the referees into an exciting new era, I know many referees and the one thing they have been wanting for years is training and a focused career path. I am determined with the support of our ruling body to achieve our goal of having a local officiate in the A league within 10 years and if I can achieve this goal faster I will. I have already been approached by quite a few people that have been refereeing in this region already and indeed outside of the region and they are very committed to coming on board and being part of the new and exciting direction. We will have regular meetings, focused training sessions for those that can attend and we will be fast tracking a small group of referees if they can be identified as having the right talent and mental strength required to one day referee at the highest level.” said Graham Chapman
If you are a current or former referee or you would like to commence refereeing in this region please call our office on 4731 2911 or email us at email@example.com and have your name submitted and we will be back in touch shortly’

CONGRATULATIONS ARE IN ORDER
Published 26Jul13 1:50pm
Contratulations go to two of Colo SFC's female sides who recently represented their club and our district in the FNSW State Cup Finals.
The U18 Girls (All Age Women Div. 2) side were unfortunately defeated in the final, however the U16 Girls team were successful in taking out the Football NSW State Cup Finals Crown for 2013. Their Coach, Malcolm Fraser submitted the following match report;
Match report. 16 Girls Div 1 State Cup Final Sunday 14/7/2013 Colo SFC 2 - Wakehurst FC 0
Colo girls right from the start were firing on all cylinders, even after playing 8 games in 7 days you would be excused for thinking our girls were running out of stream.
All over the park we were strong and the team work was amazing to watch. The girls gave a real treat to the large group of Colo supporters who turned up to cheer them on.
Mel's first half Goals gave the girls a great chance of winning the NSW State Championship for the second time in 3 years and they held on to the final whistle to win 2 nil.
I could not single out one girl for player of the match as each one of them gave 100% and that's all a proud old coach could ask for. - Malcolm Fraser Coach U16G/1

2013 CLUB REFEREE COURSE
Date Published 31Jan13 14:42
The NDSFA will once again be running a club referee course for the 2013 season. To those of you who are new, a Club Referee is a volunteer, who has received basic referee training and sits in between an official NDSRA referee and an untrained or unaccredited volunteer.
The NDSFA clubs have endorsed this program some years ago to assist clubs in easing the burden in trying to find a suitable person to referee matches where an official referee has not been appointed. Club Referees, once they’ve completed their course, passed an exam, and have been registered by a local club, can be appointed to games by their club, in the absence of an official referee. They are provided with an NDSFA club referee uniform, and are paid 50% of the scheduled fee for official referees.
Information below is for the 2013 Club Referees Course. The course is strictly limited to 35 places. A waiting list will apply once all places have been filled. If the waiting list grows to a sufficient size, a second course will be scheduled.
Dates: (Participants must attend all sessions to qualify)
7th, 14th & 21st March – Club Referee Workshops
28th March – Club Referee Exam
4th April – Results/Debrief
7pm – 9pm
Club meeting room at our office – 9/51 York Rd, Penrith
We encourage clubs to nominate adults to participate in this program so that you have club referees available to cover adult games. We also encourage younger participants who can cover junior games.
In promoting this course to your members, please consider where your referee shortfalls usually lay, and try to recruit members who’s maturity and ability to manage your shortages would best suited.
Please note, participants must have attained the age of 14 years.
If you are interested in participating in this course, please email email@example.com with your name, club, DOB, contact number and email address.
EVER WONDERED WHERE YOUR FEES GO TO?
Date Published 17Dec12 10:00AM
Fees vary from club to club and association to association. Some clubs will charge your games fees up front, some will collect these weekly and thereby reduce your initial outlay. Some will include uniform and some won’t. Some clubs are saving for special projects and may strike a levy to help fund it, while others yet, may charge you a fundraising levy and not approach you all year with fundraisers, while other clubs will run raffles every week. The combinations are endless.
But, beyond the fee that your club collects, there are other fees collected in the back-ground that you should know about. Not everything you pay to your club stays with your club, and not all fees that you pay to your club come to us. When your fees finally reach your association (head office), they also don’t stay with us 100%. Some fees are passed onto FNSW for their use, some are passed onto FFA and some go towards an accident support policy for players.
We also have a levy that goes towards supporting a pathway for elite players. This pathway is available to all players in the NDSFA who qualify through trials. The final levy we collect is called a Ground Maintenance Fund Levy. This money goes into a big bucket that is then made available to clubs in the form of a grant (criteria applies) to assist with ground maintenance repairs and improvements for emergency repairs and big ticket items.
To view a full break up of fees click on the link below. If you need more information, please see your club administrators.
