All junior (U6 to U11) and youth (U12 to U18) team officials (coaches, managers and trainers) who are 18 years or older must have a free Working With Children Check (WWC) performed.
You will need to enter your WWC number and it’s expiry date when registering in PlayFootball as a Coach or a Manager.
To arrange the check, connect to the NSW Government’s Office of the Children’s Guardian (OCG) web site (www.kidsguardian.nsw.gov.au) and apply for a check or request to renew an existing WWC number if it has expired.
After completing the application you will soon after be emailed an application number. You then need to take this and some photo ID to any motor registry to confirm your identity. Until this is done the OCG will not initiate the background check .. so please identify yourself asap at the registry.
The OCG will then initiate the background check and will email you your WWC number. This process can take 4 weeks.
