For many years Griffith Football has revolved in a continuous cycle of ups and downs on both a domestic and representative construct within the game.
More apparent now than in more recent time exists an opportunity for the footballing community to embrace change in the structures of the code to provide a sustainable platform for domestic football for years to come. With change comes pain, but also with change an avenue for development and opportunity can be created.
Successful change can only be beneficial if all participants come together to head towards a common goal on a platform that is received and implemented in its entirety. A common goal that can be reached, if we all walk a common path, towards the betterment of the game.
This document is presented as a draft and requires scrutiny by all clubs, players and bodies involved with the game. It has been drafted to provide a foundation that can be developed, modified and adopted by all with broader input and is merely a starting point to improve discussions around the facilitation of the game and growth of our competition and opportunities.
It is a document that however does include important information about the problems and decisions as an entire sporting group that need to be made now and also will continue to develop to ensure that a lot of hard work and achievements have not been done for the code to complete and exit in the revolving door that has historically been.
The document will provide information in relation to the current operation of Football in Griffith now and how it could look in the future.
We thank you for your time in considering where your ultimate direction and involvement for the game will be either as a club, club representative, player or administrative body.
