BMX Australia's Coach Education Program
BMX Australia's Coach Education Program aims to educate, assist and develop coaches at all levels, in all disciplines (racing and freestyle) so that they can fully support the nurturing and development of their riders. More information regarding this can be found on the BMX Australia website.
It is important to realise that BMX Australia require ALL coaches to have a Working with Children (WWC) Check and First Aid Qualification. You may undertake a Coaching qualification but will not be permitted to be a coach until these requirements have been satisfied. In Victoria the Working with Children checks are overseen by the Victorian Department of Justice.
Victorian Working With Children (WWC) Checks
Under Victorian law all people working with children under the age of 18 years are required to have a Working With Children check. The Working with Children (WWC) Check helps protect children from physical and sexual harm. It does this by screening people’s criminal records and professional conduct, and by preventing those who pose an unjustifiable risk to children from working with or caring for them. Passing a WWC Check is a legal requirement for everyone in Victoria doing paid or voluntary child-related work who doesn’t qualify for an exemption. The WWC Check does not seek to regulate the private relationships of family and friends – only the contact a child has with someone doing child-related work.
You can apply for a check online - Click here to apply online for a check. Please note that anyone undertaking a voluntary role at the club which most Coaches do then your check will be at no cost as long as you nominate the Club that you are undertaking your Coaching at predominately.
