The 2010 season saw the commencement of the state-wide rollout of the Quality Club Program (QCP)
The concept of the Quality Club Program is to provide an opportunity for all community football clubs in WA to achieve a minimum standard of club administration and to recognise and reward clubs for achieving the base standard through to standards of excellence.
Through the Quality Club program, clubs will have the opportunity to achieve the following levels:
Bronze – a level to recognise good club administration.
Silver - a level to recognise excellent club administration.
Gold – a level to recognise exceptional club administration.
