Every year, more than half a million children across NSW participate in sport with the support of thousands of dedicated volunteers.
Since June 2013, people seeking to work or volunteer with children under 18 years in NSW have been required to have a Working With Children Check (WWCC).
Employers, including sports clubs and associations, are also required to verify all WWCCs through the new online system.
From 31 March 2016, all Junior Rugby League clubs affiliated with the NSWRL must only ‘employ’ workers (paid or voluntary) involved directly with the childrens’ teams if the worker has a valid Working with Children Check (WWCC), has applied for one, or if exempt, has provided the club with a Statutory Declaration, Undertaking and Consent.
