Prior to Round 1 Thursday 7 August
All Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches and Managers will have obtained a current and valid Working with Children Authorisation Number ("WWCC") or Working with Children Application Number ("APP") issued by NSW Office of the Children’s Guardian ("NSW OCG").
An APP Number is issued immediately to applicants after completing a few details on line; as such there is no reason why a team Manager, Assistant Coach, Head Coach and other volunteers identified by the Club not have either a WWCC or APP Number prior to commencement of Round 1 this Friday night.
It is incumbent on Clubs to stand aside volunteers who do not possess a WWCC or APP Number until such time as it has been obtained and verified by a duly authorised representative of the Club.
Note only persons 18 years of age and older require a WWCC Number. In the event a volunteer turns 18 years of age during the CSJBA’s 2017-18 baseball season, that volunteer will be required to obtain a WWCC Number.
At Conclusion of Round 4
By 9pm Sunday of the weekend concluding Round 4, all Clubs participating in the CSJBA’s 2017-18 competition will have provided the CSJBA their completed verified WWCC database. The format to be submitted and your Club's WWCC register as previously provided the CSJBA will be sent to Clubs separately by me in the next 24 hours.
Among the other roles for which a Club might require a WWCC Number, the CSJBA will anticipate that each team in that Club, as identified in the Grading Matrix provided the CSJBA on 22 August, will have at least one Head Coach, Assistant Coach and Manager. Acknowledging that not all Club teams are structured this way (some Coaches like to manage, some teams don’t have an Assistant Coach), Clubs will need to confirm the absence of the role in that team in the database provided.
Only volunteers possessing a verified WWCC Number will be permitted to participate in the Competition after this time.
In conclusion, please be advised that in the event a Club:
i. does not provide the CSJBA the above mentioned database by the due date and until such time as it is received, the Clubs’ teams will be scratched from subsequent Rounds with a Win awarded to the opposing team
ii. provides an incomplete database, then those teams for which information is incomplete will be scratched from subsequent Rounds with a Win awarded to the opposing team until such time that complete information is received
iii. does not complete requisite information pertaining to an individual, then that individual is to be stood aside until such time that a WWCC Number has been obtained and verified by a duly authorised representative of the Club
