Blue Card Requirements

The purpose of the blue card system is to contribute to the creation of safe and supportive environments for children and young people when receiving services and participating in activities which are essential to their development and wellbeing, such as child care, education, sport, and cultural activities.

Volunteers and trainee students who work with children and young people must hold a blue card if their work falls into a category of regulated employment, regardless of how often they will come into contact with children and young people, unless an exemption applies.  This includes sport and recreation activities.

Link to apply or renew your Blue Card.

Please note that all Blue Card applications will need to be given to Kayleen Bryan, for signing off before submission.

All Brothers Aston Villa coaches and managers are required to register online at www.playfootball.com.au.  Please contact club registrar Wayne Hart if you require any assistance.


Role of the Coach

The coach is responsible for the development of player’s skills, and to improve the performance of the players and the team both physically and psychologically.  The coach plans and implements training sessions and manages the team dynamics during games.  The coach is to ensure that players and the coaching staff for their team adhere to the codes of behaviour specified by FFA.


The coach should reinforce BAVFC values of:

  • Sportsmanship
  • Development
  • Fair play
  • Fun & Enjoyment


Role of the Manager

The role of a Manager is to help with the organisation of the team, leaving the Coach free to coach the team.  Your role includes assisting with providing information from the club to player’s and their families, and collecting funds and forms.  For example notes, fund raising forms, information about home games, break up information.  On training days, a member of the committee will look for a manager to hand out or collect forms and/or funds.


Please contact any of the BAVFC Committee members for further clarification.  You may negotiate the sharing of duties between the coach, assistant coach and manager to suit your individual needs.


Coaches and Managers are required to support the Club’s Fee Policy if directed.  Players who have not met their commitment to paying their fees are ineligible to play until scheduled payments have been made.  Please note: This only applies to players on a payment plan approved by the committee, the majority of players should have their fees paid in full prior to games commencing. 


Please send match reports and/or photos on your team’s progress, and any achievements or interesting information about the development of individual players in your team to Michelle Zielke to contribute to our Facebook page and this website.
