Working With Children Check

posted 30 Jan 2017, 17:33 by Avoca FC   [ updated 30 Jan 2017, 17:33 ]

For the 2017 season, in addition to registering on myfootballclub, all coaches and managers must also complete a Working With Children (WWC) Check.

There are three stages to carrying out this check:

1)      Online application where you will receive an application (APP) number (details in link below)

2)      In person verification at a Service NSW Office

3)      Completing the form letting us know your WWC number once you have received clearance from Kids Guardian

 This form is also available under the Coaches Tab on this website.

The WWC check is free for volunteers.

 It is very important that all coaches and managers complete this check. The club can face significant fines for those that fail to comply ($11,000) and, more importantly, we want to ensure that the children in our care are protected.

Please take the time to complete your check as soon as possible. For most people, the response will be very fast (mine arrived before I finished driving home from the registry office). However, some people experience lengthy delays, particularly those who have lived and worked overseas and/or in particular government departments. So please apply asap so that we have our checks in place before the season starts.
