Child Safe

The Working with Children Act 2005 (Act) helps to protect children from sexual or physical harm by requiring a person who does 'child-related work' to apply for a Working With Children's Check (WWCC). The person's criminal record is then screened for serious sexual, violent and drug offences as well as findings made by certain professional disciplinary bodies (ref: Department of Justices WWC Information Sheet).

The Moorabbin Tigers as a member of SBA require all Coaches, Team Managers, Coordinators and Committee members 18 years and over to have a WWCC.

The Committee would like to encourage all other adults who help out at the Club to obtain a WWCC, it is a free check for volunteers & only supports our commitment to our players.

The SBA has engaged Everproof as a database management system to manage compliance documentation of its members. Both Team Managers and Coaches (Game day and Training) are required to be compliant.
