District Centre of Excellence

The Centre of Excellence is the foundation for the WAFL’s future and a key to the ongoing development of our great game in Western Australia. The aim is to ensure all players coming through the WA development system have exposure to opportunities that maximise their potential.

This initiative aims to deliver:

  • Higher quality WAFL players
  • Greater number of draftable players to the AFL
  • Highest standard of coaching and support staff
  • Higher quality of community level players
  • Higher quality of educated parents for future generations

The concept of WAFL Clubs as a “Centre of Excellence” for the District is the foundation of future growth and prosperity. It has been endorsed by the AFL, WAFC and all WAFL Boards. This model will continue to grow the game in Western Australia and find a synergy between the WAFL Club and its District.
