Volunteering and Working With Children Checks

Enormous thanks to all volunteers and families who attended the practice matches before Easter. We all got an exciting taste of what’s to come ahead of Round 1 which kicks off on the 14th of April – less than 2 weeks away!

To help keep our children safe, all volunteers are asked to supply a Working With Children Check. YJFL is using a program called Ratify to capture information this year.

Of course, we can’t operate without the help of volunteers but spoiler alert .. this task is not the most fun part of volunteering. It is necessary though.

What to do:-

  1. If not yet done, volunteers to send their name, email address and the name of the team they’re helping to Ratify@sharksjfc.org.au
  2. Follow the directions in the email you then receive from Ratifyme
  3. If you don’t already have a WWCC, allow a couple of weeks to receive it
  4. Look forward to Round 1 and let your kids know you’re doing your bit for their footy fun!

If you have any questions or need help navigating the software, please email Ratify@sharksjfc.org.au (note: desktop or browser may be easier to navigate than the mobile app).

Lastly, don’t forget we have our Family Season Launch Event on the 14th of April at Domeney. This will run from 5pm until 8pm with fun planned for the whole family with inflatable rides, food vans booked and the bar open.

Kind Regards,

Sharks Committee
