PennoFC takes it responsibilities when working with children very seriously.
The Club requires all Managers, Coaches and those Adults working closely with players under 18 years of age, to complete a 'Working with Children' check. A 'Working with Children' check is now required even if you have a child in the team your engaged with.
'PennoFC must hold records of this check prior to the commencement of Season training.
The NSW Office of the Children's Guardian suggests most 'Working with Children' checks are completed within 'a few days' of providing proof of your identity at a ServiceNSW Location. However, applications have also been known to take up to 4 weeks in the past.
If you have any general questions about the 'Working with Children' check, the NSW Office of the Children's Guardian publishes some very useful FAQ's. Please reach out to your Age Manager if you still have unresolved concerns.
