WHITE LICENSE ANNOUNCEMENT


In our continuing efforts to update our member services, the safeguarding and protection of our students and pupils, especially children, is of paramount importance.

We need to maintain our credibility within the wider sports community and raise awareness for everyone
who wishes to have lessons and coaching sessions,that they do so in a safe and protected environment.

We have started the process by introducing the annual license renewal which enables us to check
individual status via the DBS online update service and provide insurance cover for coaches, instructors and officials alike.

In the light of recent events in other sports we have decided to speed it up further, by bringing forward the deadline date for the renewal of all old “White Licenses” to August 31st 2017.

This means that all white license holders must apply for a new license to begin no later than
1st September 2017 in order to continue coaching.

Additionally, all instructors/coaches who hold “Phase” or “T” (transition) status must update their coaching knowledge to either FUNdamentals Coach or Foundation Coach status before the end of 2017 to continue coaching from 1st January 2018.

It is vital that all our dedicated coaches have the most up-to-date knowledge and skills so that we have consistency across the country.

I’m sure we would all agree that this is especially necessary in YBCs where the protection and safeguard of all our children is, of course, our primary concern.
