Anyone employed to be a coach or instructor of children’s sports whose duties include teaching, training or instructing children, or providing advice or guidance to children relating to their physical, emotional or educational well-being, is eligible for an enhanced check with a children’s barred list check.
This is because they are performing regulated activity with
children if the period condition is met.
The period condition is:
• at any time on more than three days in any period of 30 days, or
• at any time between 2am and 6am with the opportunity for face-to-face contact with children.
If a coach is performing these activities more than once but not enough to meet the period condition they are eligible for an enhanced check without any barred list check
It is a requirement within Alliance affiliated clubs that all Instructors working with children and young people (those under the age of 18) undertake a DBS check appropriate to their role. Club Welfare Officers will also need DBS checks.
