Child Safe Officer

All Clubs must have a "Child safe officer"  This person can be a school teacher or a police officer or someone who is willing to do a 3 hour course to take on this role.  (teachers and SAPOL are exempt)

 The Child Safe Officer is responsible for developing and implementing a Member Protection Policy (template and support available through HFL)and to make sure all people working with anyone under the age of 18 have a police check. Also if there are any problems or complaints within your club, your CSO will deal with it.

Police check forms can be downloaded http://www.police.sa.gov.au/sapol/services/information_requests/police_checks.jsp.  The person applying must then go to their local police station, JP,  or present in person to the HFL with all their documents for a 100 point check.  Once the 100 point check is done, the form is to be sent to the HFL for the VOAN to be stamped so there is no cost to the applicant or club.  The forms are then sent to SAPOL for approval and sent directly back to the applicant.  The applicant shall then take the approved form to their club CSO for noting (there is a facility in sportingpulse for keeping track of police check dates).  This information is not sent back to the HFL or the club. 

The HFL is committed to supporting clubs to provide  an environment safe for children that is free from harassment, discrimination and abuse for everyone, and promotes respectful and positive behaviour and values.

Moddies on a Sunday?

Should the HFL consider playing U8-U11 games on a Sunday morning rather than late Friday night?
