Western Suburbs Police Vetting for Volunteers

Overview

    • All Western Suburbs FC staff, contractors or volunteers over the age of 18 that have regular contact with children or young people (18 years old and under) at the club are required to undertake Police Vetting.

    • This policy has been introduced for the 2023 season onwards, and is in line with New Zealand Football recommendations and requirements for other similar sporting codes in New Zealand.

    • The Vetting Process is undertaken through the official New Zealand Football maintained online vetting website.

    • The Western Suburbs FC Vetting Process is managed by the Western Suburbs Coach Coordinator, who has been authorised by the Western Suburbs FC Board to manage this process.

    • Two forms of identity are required to be personally witnessed by a Grade Convenor or the Coach Coordinator to complete the Vetting Process.

    • The results of the Vetting Process are strictly confidential, and an appeals process is available if required.

    • Police Vetting is valid for three years from the date of issue and is renewed every three years thereafter.

    • Refusing to undertake Police Vetting (or not providing identity evidence) will result in ineligibility to work with children at Western Suburbs FC.
