Returning team officials do not need to book a re-screening interview each season providing they coached for WISC in the immediate previous year. Each team staff member must bring to the Club office a Final Criminal Record Check or at a minimum, your receipt that you have applied for a police check. This will enable the office to process your paperwork for your team. Once you bring your Final Criminal Record Check to the office you will need to sign a form to acknowledge we have not kept a copy and that the police check has been returned to you. This can only be done by an official screening officer. Please send an e-mail to Diana Bebek at email@example.com regarding attending at the office to present your final document and sign off on it.
TO BOOK A SCREENING INTERVIEW - All team officials(coaches, managers) on competitive teams must arrange a screening interview with the office(it takes approx. 10 minutes). Please send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org providing your availability to attend the office to complete the screening interview during the following days and timeframe, Monday to Thursday 1-4pm. Request for interviews outside of this timeframe, can be accomodated but will require coordination with other screening officers.
