Police Clearance Procedure



There is a GSABA Child Safe Policy and there are legislative requirements that are required to be adhered to in relation to "Working with Children legislation. The GSABA is adopting the policy of Police Checks for GSABA Club coaches, assistant coaches and team managers for teams with minors (17 or under) in the team.

Steps 1,2 and 3 to be completed as outlined below.

Step 4 - The forms then need to be given to the GSABA Business Administrator Dennis Earl, these forms can be left with the canteen staff at either stadium.

We will then submit the forms in a block of Police Checks to SA Country Basketball and they will add the VOAN details and send them off to SAPOL. The Police Checks when verified and processed by SAPOL are sent direct to the applicant.

The Police Check process as outlined will be at no charge to the applicant.

When the Police Clearance is received by the GSABA Member a copy will need to be submitted to the GSABA Business Administrator as soon as possible.


GSABA Coaches, Assistant Coaches and Team Managers who have current Police Clearances can submit copies of their Police Clearance to GSABA Business Administrator as soon as possible.

Registered Teachers, Police Officers and Coaches who are minors (17 or under) are exempt.

EXEMPT MEMBERS need to inform the GSABA Business Administrator via Register.
