In 5 weeks there’s every possibility that an NPL junior club will have
13s in pool A
14s in pool B
15s in pool C and
 16s in pool D
For example a 14s club playing in Mandurah and the same 15s club playing in Joondalup.
How can you promote a player?
How are they going to fixture the games

if the said club has injuries , it will be a nightmare , please go back to a 12 team comp next year and improve the competition 22 teams is too many players needed who are not even div 2 players , getting a game , if your seniors are not in NPL  , then your juniors should not be either

That's not the solution. The solution is let the top 12 teams in the State play NPL and the rest go into divisions below. Winners in the league below get promoted, NPL bottom teams get relegated. Is that too hard? Heaven forbid that the best junior teams are playing NPL. Should have been that way from the start. The only condition you put on promotion is that the club has the appropriate coaches and technical director in place to meet NPL requirements and even then I have serious reservations as to whether this should be a criteria. Is it possible a team could be good enough to play NPL without a qualified coach or a technical director? I'm sure we all know the answer but that's for another day.

FFANPLWA should be fluid ......and at minimal cost taking and releasing back players from state league affiliates.....end of story!

So how will the next group of fixtures work?
Have FW Stuffed this up?
If I have a kid in the 13s and 14s what if one is in a group with one of the many Joondalup teams and the other playing South west Phoenix

The way it looks is that by expanding the NPL with more teams,  there is a greater opportunity to discover the next great star that will help to get Australia to winning the World Cup.   The more they expand the number of teams the more the competition will look like the competition before the 'creation' of the 'NPL league.

Won't find the next star here as the clowns who are looking don't know what to look for and then don't know how to train the kids they do pick. Just have a look at the merry-go-round called Perth Glory development. About time they sacked the ones in charge of development there as not seen much talent produced there.
