What is the policy?
All registered coaches in Queensland will be required to display an ‘official’ identification pass with their blue card and Football Australia numbers.
Why has the policy been introduced?
Football Queensland is committed to protecting the thousands of children who play football across Queensland.
The policy will provide increased visibility and reassurance for parents and participants by clearly identifying registered coaches and will give them surety in knowing that the individual possesses a valid blue card.
Who needs an identification badge?
All members of a team’s coaching staff will require an identification badge including coaches, team managers, physiotherapists and any individual requiring access to the field of play, technical area or referee room.
