All Gymea Junior Rugby League volunteers must have a current Working With Children Check (WWC).

  • Coaches
  • Managers
  • Trainers
  • Committee Members

There are no exceptions because this is the law in NSW.

The WWC can take some time to be processed. Please ensure you apply in plenty of time prior to the  season start. Once your application have been processed you will need to attend a Service NSW location and present your identification and complete the application.

Letter from our Child Protection Officer

Hi everyone and welcome back to the Gymea Gorillas for 2023, hope you all had a great xmas and look forward to a happy new year.

My name is Bev Herbert and I am the Working with Children Protection Officer and my job is to make sure that all volunteers (coaches, trainers, managers) and anyone that is involved with a team has a current WWC Number.

Having a current WWC Number is a must for any volunteer helping with children under 18 years of age.

If you considering volunteering for any of the above positions you will have to apply for a WWC on-line at the NSW Office of the Childrens Guardian, it only takes a couple of minutes. You get a application number which you will then have to take that number along with your ID to Services NSW to complete the application, your application only last for 28 days so please do so at your earliest convenience. The earlier the better before all clubs start getting their volunteers to do the same, even if you are unsure if you will volunteer having a WWC is always handy to have and it is free for volunteers.

Please send me your WWC Number when you receive it and I can be contacted on 0419432019 or email

Enjoy your year with us,

Bev Herbert.
