Working With Children Check

The North Brunswick Junior Football Club would not survive without volunteers.

Parents, relatives and friends of junior players take on roles within the club that enable our children to take the field every week. Roles include coaching staff, Committee members, canteen and the many jobs required on match day: runners, trainers, boundary and goal umpires, water carriers, interchange stewards, umpire escorts, and time keepers.

We have a wonderful group of parent volunteers who help ensure the club and all matches run smoothly. However, we can always use more volunteers. To do so, it is a legal requirement for all volunteers in the North Brunswick Junior Football Club to have a current Working With Children Check.

The Working With Children Check (WWCC) is mandated by the Victorian Government to help protect children from physical, sexual and psychological harm. It assesses a person’s suitability to work with children where undertaking paid or voluntary child-related work in Victoria. WWCC cards are valid for 5 years unless revoked by the Department of Justice and Regulation.

Registration is FREE OF CHARGE for all volunteers. Simply name the North Brunswick Junior Football Club as your voluntary organisation when applying.
