If you aspire to be playing NPL football in the fuutre, you must join the Mornington SC Pre-NPL program now, to give you the best opportunity to achieve your dreams of playing in the junior NPL competition.

Trials for the new season will be opening soon

Mornington Soccer Club holds a Junior NPL Licence (JBNPL). The JBNPL commences at the under-14 age group and is the premier football competition for aspiring and talented players. There is a significant jump from Mini Roos and Community grade competition, both from the standard of the playing competition, the quality of coaching and development needs, and the commitment required from both players and parents.

Our Pre-NPL program for U12 and U13 Boys is designed to give players who aspire to join the NPL program a developmental pathway to minimse the step up into the full JBNPL competition and to give them the best chance of securing a spot in the NPL program when they become eligible.

Each JBNPL Licenced club must field at least one U12 and U13 team in Football Victoria ‘A’ Grade competition which means our Pre-NPL Under 12 and Under 13 squads will be playing against the highest-quality competition. The competition utilises a 9 v 9 playing format which is designed to give players more touches of the ball in a smaller field of play; developing ball mastery and increasing game awareness.

Our program Incorporates pre-season competitions and an end-of-season 11 v 11 transitional tournament; this program extends beyond a standard community season with training 3 nights per week and dedicated fitness and developmental sessions and advanced coaching, more aligned to the normal NPL program. Coaching is delivered by an FFV ‘C’ Licensed coach or higher and is overseen by our Technical Director (FFV B License) and our heads of Football Development.
