Football wouldn’t be football without volunteers. Our volunteers play such an important role in the Club, supporting the committee, coaches and players throughout the season. If you have some time to give, please do not hesitate to get in contact with us firstname.lastname@example.org
It is a requirement under the National Registration Regulations for all Coaches, Managers and Volunteers to be registered in PlayFootball. Please register here.
It is also a requirement under the Football Queensland Competition Regulations for anyone whom enters the Technical Area to be registered through PlayFootball. Any person that is found to have breached the National Registration Regulations or the Football Queensland Competition Regulations will be dealt with appropriately under the Regulations. Please note that the Club may also be sanctioned under the Regulations should a breach occur.
Code of Conduct
All Volunteers are required to abide by our Code of Conduct.
Any breaches of the above code will result in disciplinary action which may include cancellation of your child's registration and exclusion from the club.
Blue card application
The blue card system is a key prevention and monitoring system of people working with children and young people in Queensland. It aims to minimise the risks of harm to children and young people by contributing to the creation of safe and supportive environments and is founded on the principle that all children have a fundamental right to be protected from harm.
Volunteers need a blue card if their work or practical placement in sport and active recreation includes, or is likely to include, providing services that are directed mainly towards children, or conducting activities that mainly involve children, unless an exemption applies.
At Western Pride FC, we require all Coaches and Managers to hold a Blue Card – even if they’re coaching/managing senior teams.
