my coaching “Police Check”

Where I live a criminal records check is required every 3 years.

Though it was possible to apply online, I went instead in person to the nearest “Police and Intervention Record Check” office with driver’s licence and passport in hand.

Application was short and simple. I paid my $30 and was told it would take 3 weeks for my report to be mailed.

All coaches and support staff should check what’s required where you live.

All clubs should require Police Checks from their staff that work with children.

Truly the police checking process should be ongoing. At first criminal infraction the employer should be notified. Immediately.

American Twisters Florida has an excellent Child Safety page listing their policies. Compare your club with Twisters.
