WORKING WITH CHILDREN CHECK

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.

COVID-19 impact

St Raphael's Stars Basketball Club supports the Victoria Governments restrictions put in place to reduce the impact of COVID-19.

Whilst this has meant no basketball, it is a necessary action to support the healthcare system in order to give those affect the best possible care.

With restrictions easing, as soon as the State Government and Basketball Victoria announce a date for the return of competition basketball, the committee will be in touch with our families on what the Winter season will look like and start the registration process.
