Working With Children Check

Everyone working with children needs to get a WWC check.

Child protection in local football

Child protection is a complex subject with a number of strategies involved. It includes policies and practices put in place to keep children safe from harm, from physical, sexual, or emotional abuse or neglect.

Child-protection legislation sets out how child abuse should be reported and investigated, and imposes obligations on people dealing with children.

Working With Children Check

For those of us involved with Club Football, complying with legislation and our member associations' member protection policies means that everyone who is working with children under the age of 18 needs to get a working with children check.

This applies to all coaches/managers/trainers of Junior (6 to 11 & W-7 to W-11) and Youth (12 to 18 & W-12 to W-18) teams as well as any coaches/managers/trainers of senior team where there are players under the age of 18.

The only exception is coaches/managers that are themselves under the age of 18.

The Working With Children Check (WWCC) is free for volunteers and in 2024 costs $80 for paid workers (e.g. paid trainers).

Obtaining a Working With Children Check (WWCC)

Step 1: Fill out the online form at - click on the apply online button to bring this up.

Step 2: Take your application number from your submission of the form to your local Service NSW branch along with 100 points of ID to prove your identity.

Step 3: Once you have done the above two steps, provide the club at with your application number or, if received, your WWC number, so we can verify you check with the authorities. We cannot verify on the application number if you have not been to Service NSW and had it checked against your ID.
