Northbridge FC - Overview
NSFA - LOCAL LEAGUE
As of 2012, Northbridge FC will have teams in all age groups and most NSFA Divisions, Junior and Senior, of the Local NSFA League.
Northbridge FC is a club for players of all levels of skill and ambition. Essentially, we are running six clubs under the one banner:
*) From GU12 girls' age groups span two years.
- U6 – U9 – Junior Non-Comp, Boys/Mixed
- U10 – U18 – Junior Comp, Boys(/Mixed)
- Girls & Women – G8, G9, G10, G12*, G14, G16, G18, WAA & W35 (new in 2012)
- Men – All Age, M35 & M45
- Junior Football Academy – Elite Programme U8 – U12, Boys & Girls
- State League – Boys & Men, Girls & Women
We have friendship teams, graded teams, Development Squads and we have recently introduced the Northbridge FC Junior Football Academy for our younger aspiring elite players.
In the youngest age groups, U6 – U7, teams are mixed boys and girls, but from the U8 age group, girls have the option to play in the Girls Only Sunday comp. Some girls choose to play both Saturday Mixed Comp and Sunday Girls Comp. By the time, the girls reach U12 the vast majority will have moved to the Girls Sunday Comp.
From U10/G12, we offer individual grading for players as well as team grading to ensure that teams are playing in a comp and division to suit their standard. As a rule, we aim to group players of similar ability and ambition together to form teams who will be competitive in their respective divisions. These grading sessions take place in February and are in separate to trials for the Junior Academy and State League.

JUNIOR ELITE PROGRAMMES
Junior Football Academy (JFA)
The Club launched its Junior Football Academy in late 2011. It is an intensive Elite Programme for talented boys and girls in the U8 – U12 Age Groups. Within the JFA, we have three different, but closely linked groups – Junior Football Academy/JFA (U8 – U9), Premier Development Programme/PDP (U10 – U12) and Advanced Development Squads/ADS (U10 – U12).
Players are invited to join the JFA, PDP and ADS following trials during October/November of each year.
