Working With Children (WWC) Checks

"WORKING WITH CHILDREN" CHECKS


The club is now being fined if a team does not have a coach/person present with a WWC check. The only requirement is that the WWC person's name be printed on the front of the scoresheet. If you have a WWC and can help out, please contact the Club Secretary (see Contacts page for details).

The Williamstown Cannons are committed to providing the safest possible environment for our children to participate in the game of basketball. It is now a legal requirement that all coaches have a "Working With Children" card (WWC). For those already in possession of a WWC , and needing to add ABBA and/or the Williamstown Cannons to their details, the steps are as follows:

1. Go to the link:

http://www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au/

2. Click on "Update my details” and add in the two organisations with the address details below:


- Altona Basketball Association (PO Box 273, Altona 3018, Ph: 03 9360 9288)

- Westgate Basketball Association (PO Box 405, Yarraville 3013)

and

- Williamstown Cannons Basketball Club (PO Box 872 Williamstown 3016)

WWC will provide details to the Cannons and ABBA that you qualify for WWC upon their processing of the changes.
