Update for Coaches - New by law, regarding working with children check.
From the 6th of October, we will be enforcing this new by law brought to us by the WCBA. The club will be in touch with all coaches in regard to providing you with a lanyard.
All clubs/teams participating in the Whittlesea City Basketball Association Junior Domestic Competition must ensure that all coaches, team managers, Committee and Board members have a current Working With Children Check. All Junior Domestic coaches must wear their WWC Check on a lanyard at all times whilst coaching. Police/teachers are exempt but must give proof on request. An up to date register must be kept by each club/team and made available upon request. Penalties will apply by Basketball Victoria for any clubs/teams who do not adhere to this ruling. All relevant information can be downloaded from the Basketball Victoria website. All coaches over 18 MUST carry a WWC card.
