Criminal Record Checks

A Criminal Record Check (CRC) is MANDATORY for all V&DABA coaches, assistant coaches and supervisory staff or anyone else who is not a player and opts to sit on the player bench. 

A cleared CRC is valid for 5 years so you do not have to apply again while your CRC is still valid.

The CRC review can be conducted online or through a manual paper process.
