As from January 2018 Football NSW has made a change to the Working With Children Check (WWCC) policy by adding additional requirements as follows:
“For the 2018 season and beyond, the following participants are required to obtain a WWCC and provide their WWCC Number to their club, association, branch, centre or referee branch:
- All paid persons working with children under 18 years of age;
- All coaches, managers working in a paid or volunteer role with children under 18 years;
- All technical directors working in a paid or volunteer role with children under 18 years;
- All referees (except those under 18 years of age);
- All committee members of organisations with participants aged under 18 years of age;
- All Member Protection Information Officers; and
- Persons in any other child related roles not listed unless exempt. “
Ballina Soccer Club will comply with the advised changes to WWCC policy as directed by Football NSW to include the above amendments of who is required to have a working with children check.
The following are links to our Compliance Statement, Information for coaches and others requiring a WWCC on the process and the Ballina Soccer Club Working with Children Check Policy.
For updated information that answers some Q&A that coaches and other interested parties may have, see the following link from Football NSW: https://footballnsw.com.au/protection-and-safety/working-with-children/
IF YOU ARE COACHING, TEAM MANAGER, COMMITTEE MEMBER OR WILL REGULARLY VOLUNTEER ON WEEKENDS such as in the canteen etc IN 2022, you need to start the process of getting a Working With Children Check. If you only need the WWCC for soccer purposes, then there is no cost ($0 – it’s free) to have this check undertaken.
If you have any questions regarding the WWCC that cannot be answered by the above information, please contact our Child Protection Officer – Gen Sims on 0413 754 379
