All existing and any new coaches and managers that intend on coaching/managing a team each season must complete your Coach or Volunteer (Team Manager) registration online using the FFA’s Play Football system prior to round 1 of the season.
If you are creating an account for the first time you MUST also upload a passport style photo of yourself on your Play Football profile, new coaches/managers please also email a copy of your identification (drivers licence, passport etc) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are involved with a team that will have players who are under 18, FFA policy requires you to complete a working with children check (WWCC). This is free and valid for 5 years and is obtained through the Office of the Children’s Guardian.
Please note that you will need to record your WWCC number, once obtained, during your online registration, so your WWCC number will need to be obtained before completing your online coach or manager registration.
To obtain a WWCC number:
1 – Log on to www.kidsguardian.nsw.gov.au and complete online request
2 – You are then required to attend a Service NSW office with identification to complete the process
3 – Your WWCC number will then be emailed to you within a couple of days.
