NTC Girls Program

The National Training Centre (NTC) for girls is a key pillar of the FFA’s development model for players.

The NTC is a full-time football training program, with a main purpose of preparing players who show the potential talent to progress through the FFA development model to achieve Senior NPLW, W-League and international representation.

The NTC should also have the ability to serve current internationals or other potential talents on a part-time basis, regardless of age.

Upon selection after FV's initial trial process, players will be required to train a minimum of three nights per week with the NTC Squad and play one match.

Code of Conduct 

2020 Nationals Tournaments

The FV NTC Girls Coaches are responsible for taking the state team to represent Victoria at National Championships every year at the U14, U15 and U17 level. It is important to note that players who do not make it into the program at the beginning of the year are still monitored for nationals as the opportunity to go to nationals is not only for those in the program.

From these pathways, players may then be recognised for National Team Representation, W-League or opportunities overseas. It is also important to note that there is no singular avenue into elite football as there are also opportunities external to the pathways mentioned above.

The National Youth Championships will take place in July at Coffs Harbour International Stadium for the U14 and U15 squads.

The NTC Challenge will take place in May at the AIS in Canberra for the U17 squad.
