New laws for incorporated associations and clubs coming in 2016

Monday, January 4, 2016 - 9:24 AM

New laws have been passed which are aimed at helping incorporated associations in WA operate more efficiently by providing them with a clearer framework in which to operate.

The new law will replace the existing Associations Incorporation Act 1987 and will apply to all existing incorporated associations in Western Australia.  It is the culmination of many years of work by the Department and key stakeholders in the not for profit sector and will provide incorporated associations with a legal framework that reflects modern expectations around corporate governance and the need to protect the privacy of association members.

The changes are expected to come into effect from 1 July 2016.

In the coming months the Department will release more information and resources on their website including step by step guides to assist incorporated associations through this transition period.

What do we do now?

It is important to understand that the new law will not come into effect until 1 July 2016 so in the meantime the current 1987 Act still applies. The new proposals will require associations to review their rules or constitution but there is a generous three year time frame to get this done.


Right now it is important to:

1. Enrol for AssociationsOnline and ensure that your contact details are up to date. If you are not registered already you can request a username and password by completing the online enrolment form.

2. Make sure you know when your association’s financial year ends. In preparing for the financial reporting requirements introduced by the new law it is important to understand your association’s current financial record keeping practices and identify any areas where there could be room for improvement.

The new accounting and financial reporting requirements will apply from the first financial year of an association that commences on or after 1 July 2016. For example an association with a financial year that runs from 1 July to 30 June must comply with the requirements starting from 1 July 2016. An association with a financial year that runs from 1 January to 31 December must comply from 1 January 2017.  These reporting requirements are based on financial tiers based on assets and turnover.

We will have information about these changes available early in 2016.

Transition Pack for associations and clubs

At each stage of the new laws’ introduction the Department will be releasing a Transition Pack explaining what associations are required to do at that particular time. Our first Transition Pack will be released in February to help associations understand the financial tier process and the annual reporting requirements.

Enrol for AssociationsOnline now to ensure you are notified as soon as this Transition Pack becomes available.

Year 5/6 Girls kick goals in Dockers Cup Carnival

Monday, November 2, 2015 - 3:44 PM

One of the West Perth Football District’s game development focusses in our schools has been the growth and engagement of women in AFL.  Through various programs and initiatives the district has worked to encourage girls to get involved in AFL, especially with the AFL prospect of a women’s competition proposed for 2020.

One of the competitions is our annual Year 5 and 6 Girl’s Dockers Cup Lightning Carnival. The competition took place on Tuesday, 27th October at Macdonald Park in Padbury. This year’s competition saw 4 teams from within the district compete in a round robin carnival. Development Assistant Matt Debarro said “The day was all about the girls coming and having a go, and to show them that AFL isn’t just a sport for boys.”

The day consisted of a skills clinic conducted by District staff followed by round robin matches played throughout the day. Development Officer Graham Mills commented “I was Impressed with the ability of the girls. The skills, teamwork and enthusiasm was amazing. I was most impressed with the level of tackling; the girls went in hard and safely executed the wrap tackle extremely well.”

The day was concluded with a presentation and talk with state women’s AFL Player Zoe Huggett giving the girls an overview of her journey in AFL, as well as Joondalup Falcons coach and Merriwa Primary School Physical Education teacher Christine Leonard sharing some insight into women playing AFL.

Quinns Primary School Teacher James Robins said “The carnival was a great day, my girls loved it. They had loads of fun.”

A big Thankyou to all the schools who participated, particularly the teachers for helping the West Perth district’s continued endeavour in growing our great game within the community. We look forward to next year’s competition which will be held in Term 2.

AFL 9's is coming to the City of Joondalup this spring!

Thursday, October 8, 2015 - 2:05 PM

Social Mens and Mixed Footy Competition; regsiter a team today!

McDonald’s AFL 9s is the AFL’s social version of the game. It’s a fast, free-flowing game that involves 9 players on each team playing on a smaller field. Best of all, it’s ‘touch football’ with no tackling or bumping, making it suitable for people of any age or skill level. Importantly, McDonald’s AFL 9s is easy to play, not too physically demanding and provides an environment where fun, enjoyment and safety are a priority.

McDonald’s AFL 9s enables people of all ages and ability levels to participate in male, female or mixed competitions that fit around their busy lives and provide a social and fitness outlet.

The game is played between two teams of nine (9) with interchange players. The field has a recommended length of 100 metres (which can be modified depending on the age and ability level of participants) and is divided into three zones: a mid zone and two scoring zones.

Teams score by kicking the football into their attacking scoring zone to designated forwards who are the only players permitted to score. A mark is awarded irrespective of the distance the ball has travelled and if the ball hits the ground it is an automatic turnover.

McDonald’s AFL 9s is a non-contact version of the game which requires players to implement a touch in place of a tackle.
