All coaches and team managers are required to have a current Working with Children Check (WCC). You will also be required to have a current WCC even if you are filling in for one of these roles.
The WCC is free and can be obtained by following the link below:Working With Children Check
The committee strongly recommends that any parent willing to step in to help coach or team manage gets their WCC just in case there is a last minute requirement. The WCC is free and lasts for 5 years.
The committee is available to help anyone with completing the WCC as required.
