Despite this season's charity cup being cut short, the GBBA made good on its promise to the Malvern Mavericks and were delighted to be able to make a donation to their chosen charity: "What Makes You Different Makes You Beautiful" ...
Basketball England's Safeguarding Team have put forward a proposal regarding new licencing requirements for referees and officials and officiating and coaching tutors, instructors, coordinators and developers - and we've opened consultation on this.
After a considerable amount of research and as part of the continual effort to ensure the sport is as safe as possible, some changes have been proposed that relate to licencing over the next few years.
The details are as follows:
In 2020/21, all officiating and coaching tutors, instructors, coordinators and developers will need to complete the following:
• Enhanced with Barred List Check for the Children’s Workforce. Renewal every 3 years.
• Self-Declaration Form – SG1
• Safeguarding Training – Face-to-face recommended
These steps will apply to all adult and junior referees and officials (both Local League and NBL) from the start of the 2021/22 season.
We are encouraging members to apply for Basketball England DBS checks as we are proposing that we align our practices with other sports, by making a Basketball England DBSs an essential requirement from 2023, rather than accepting scanned copies from other employers. This will again help us to improve the system and protect members.
As stated, these changes are at the proposal stage and we welcome the feedback of all members about how they feel these changes could affect them, or indeed if they support the changes proposed.
