Youth Development Restructure 

In 2024 we will be making a restructure to our growing youth program both in the community & NPL. We will be expanding the NPL pathway at Dandenong City SC meaning the NPL Pathway will commence from U11s which will now be called the Academy + NPL Pathway. At the same time the Community Pathway will be restructured slightly and no longer be called the Community Pathway. The Community Pathway will be renamed the Development Pathway from 2024 and beyond. Please see the 2 pathways that will be offered at Dandenong City SC from 2024 onwards: 


2024 Academy + NPL Pathway 

- Academy U11s - U13s 

- NPL U14s NPL - U21s 2024 


Development Pathway 

 - Mali Vatreni U4s - U6s 

- Miniroos boys and girls U7s - U11s
