Our History

The Claremont District Football Development Council was established in November 2003, after the dissolution of the former Regional Development Committees and regional based junior football competitions. The districts were formed in conjunction with the 2004 WA Football Commission zoning review, aligning districts with traditional and new football clubs. The CDFDC was established to provide strategic direction and simplify the alignment of community football (senior and junior) to its aligned WAFL club.
