It is PDFA's mission to ensure that teams get to play in professionally run competitions and players get an opportunity to showcase their talent and play for top leagues. PDFA has a membership of close to 100 clubs which play under 4 divisions and is now focussing on starting a youth league to be able to identify talent early.
