COACH, MANAGER OR RTO

What if I’m a Coach, Manager or RTO?

ALL coaches, managers and RTOs will also need to register with Play Football.

Football NSW has introduced a new Working with Children Check Policy.  From the 2018 season and beyond, it is a requirement of Football NSW that all Technical Directors, Coaches, Managers, Referees and other persons in child related roles working or volunteering with children under 18 years obtain a WWCC and provide their Club, Association, Centre, Branch or Referee Branch with a valid WWC number.

For this reason:

  • All volunteers will now require a WWC number; and
  • All referees,will now require a WWC number.
  • The only exemption for these roles recognised by Football NSW is the exemption for persons aged under 18 years.

To apply for a WWCC, visit the WWCCHECK Apply website to complete an online form, and complete your application by visiting your nearest Service NSW branch to get your ID checked. Once approved, your WWCC number will be emailed to you.  There is no fee if you are a volunteer, parent or carer.

If you think you’re WWCC has expired, please check the following link WWCCHECK Renew.

When is my Team Selection night?

Please check our website from January for details of Team Selection dates and times. We will also supply this information on Registration Day. It is very important that you attend Team Selection Night so we can organise teams and get you in contact with your Coach and Manager. This is even more important for graded teams so that we can place you in a team of similar ability.

If you have any questions please email secretary@forestrangersfc.com.au.

If you are experiencing financial difficulty and would like help or to discuss options please contact president@forestrangersfc.com.au, in confidence.

Donate your old boots!

If you have a spare set of football boots and no-one in your family to hand them down to, bring them along to donate to FRFC on our Registration Days.

We will clean up the boots and sell them for $5.00 each. All money raised goes to St George Hospital’s Cardiology and Coronary Care Unit.

For further information, contact FRFC Vice President Matt Spanko on 0481 227 584.

A final word

Remember, even if you have registered and paid this doesn’t mean you are eligible to play or coach in 2024 until our Registrar has approved your registration. Therefore, if we don’t have the required paperwork, payment or information requested, as notified above, then we will NOT be able approve your registration and you won’t be able to play in pre-season trial matches or possibly for the initial games of Season 2024.

Good luck and happy registering! Keep an eye out for our website and Facebook page for updates.
