Every coach and assistant coach 18 or older must have a Working With Children card.
The Club has adopted the policy set by Basketball Victoria and the Outlander Outlaws Basketball Club, coaches over 18 years in age and parents who are supervising children at training or games, to comply with the Victorian Govenment Working with Children Check. The form is available from, and can be submitted at, any Australia Post outlet.

The Working with Children (WWC) Check commenced in April 2006 and it contributes to the safety of Victoria’s children when they are being cared for, or participating in a range of activities. The WWC Check creates a mandatory minimum checking standard across Victoria. The WWC Check helps to keep children safe by preventing those who pose a risk to the safety of children from working with them, in either paid or volunteer work.
