Robert Wiley Foundation
The Robert Wiley Foundation was established in 2004 and is an initiative instigated to ensure the ongoing development of the Perth’s district young players, both metropolitan and country. The Foundation also strives to excel in the development of our coaches and support staff that help to develop our future Perth Football Club players in the skills of Australian Rules football. The Development Foundation will allow the Perth Football Club to develop an ongoing, consistent and broad based football development program which aims to filter throughout the ranks from foundation squads to senior football at PFC
The Development Foundation will allow for players who are not initially identified, to be included into the Development Squads at any time. Regular contact will be made with coaches and other club officials within the Perth District to assist with talent identification.
Aims of the Foundation
- Producing 100 game players for the Perth Football Club.
- Producing quality draft prospects for the AFL.
- Developing quality youth coaches.
- Promoting strong links with community junior and senior clubs.
- Increasing the standard of football played and coached within the Perth Football Club’s metropolitan district and country zones.
- To ensure the 75% of players in the senior teams at the Perth Football Club are from the PFC metropolitan District and Country Zones.
