SUNRAYSIA’S new-look football administration hub is on track to be up and running by later this year.
AFL Country Victoria’s proposals for regional football leagues to acquire the new administration hub has been agreed on by local football groups and should come to fruition by October 1.
Following an investigation into what was then known as the VCFL in 2011, AFL-appointed investigator Peter Jackson believed that dividing the state into 13 administrative hubs, rather than all leagues keeping their own administration, was the way forward.
The new administration hub will:
COMBINE the administrative duties of the Sunraysia Football and Netball League (SFNL), Sunraysia Junior Football and Netball League (SJFNL), Millewa Football League (MFL) and Sunraysia Football Umpires Association (SFUA);
APPOINT a general manager and a possible trainee administration officer to open the office between 9am-5pm weekdays;
INCLUDE the Sunraysia AFL development officer;
BE overseen by a regional board likely to have five members;
CREATE a cost-efficient administration environment; and
MAKE it easier to apply for grants to help develop football in the Sunraysia region.
SFNL president Trevor Heaft said all parties had agreed to proceed with the new hub.
“We’ve spoken to the AFL and they are happy for us to move forward,” he said. “At this stage, it looks like the office will be at the SFNL headquarters.
“The hub will be overseen by the regional board. This is the part we’re working through, but we’re considering that the board will consist of five members; one representative each from the SFNL, SJFNL and the Millewa, and two other board members.
