In the meantime, the Australian Institute of Sport have put together a coaches survival pack to give you some ideas and get you started.
Working With Children Checks
A Working With Children Check is a prerequisite for anyone in child-related work, this includes coaching a football team. It involves a national criminal history check and review of findings of workplace misconduct. The Check is provided free for volunteers and is as simple as filling out an online form (roughly 5 minutes) and then dropping into the local Service NSW office (formally Roads and Maritime Service) to confirm your identity.
If you are interested in completing a coaching course, DK will support you all the way. Here are some upcoming courses being provided by Northern Inland Football.
