Youth Development Sub-Committee

Following the success and growth of the SFL Colts competition over the past five years, the SFL has launched a Youth Development Sub-Committee, responsible for researching, reviewing and making recommendations to the Football Operations Portfolio of the SFL Board on youth football in the SFL.


The SFL are pleased to announce the following individuals (in conjunction with the SFL administration) will sit on this committee:




  •          Paul O’Toole (Chelsea Heights FC)
  •          Emrys Lloyd-Griffiths (Murrumbeena FC)
  •          Craig Prestage (Skye FC)
  •          Paul Dimattina (Bentleigh FC)
  •          Adam Neale (Carrum Patterson Lakes FC)
  •          Allen Riddle (Hampton FC)


The Youth Development Sub-Committee will provide leadership and direction in relation to growth strategies and priorities for youth football and provide guidance and support to the SFL administration - in particular, analysis on competition structure, age limits and growth related strategies.


The committee will be meeting for the first time before Christmas.
