Committee Responsibilities


Registering your Coaches

If your Club has any paid or volunteer coaches, they must complete a Coach Registration Form each year. The Coach should also provide the SU team with copies of any supporting certificates or qualifications.
The Coach Registration Form can be accessed using the button below.


PEC Passes


Sporting Clubs which make use of the PEC are entitled to free passes for up to three registered Coaches (paid or volunteer). This pass enables each Coach to enter the PEC at Club training times, as specified by the official Club bookings. Clubs with more than three coaches must seek special permission to have additional passes issued.
