Active and UKA Qualified Volunteer Coaches at Club Nights

Swansea Harriers is fortunate to have a large team of volunteer coaches that help week in week out in the club throughout the year and in all weather. Any queries related to coaching should be sent to the clubs coaches coordinator andrew.jenkins90@ntlworld.com or 078 94 57 35 55.

We take our responsibilities towards the welfare of young people in athletics very seriously and require everyone in athletics who has significant contact with children to have a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (which has replaced the CRB check). 

All coaches must have an enhanced DBS check (Disclosure & Baring Service) and have a valid British Athletics Coaching License to coach at the club in club sessions. Licenses are valid for a 3 year period and the enhanced DBS check must be renewed to have the license validated.

The clubs DBS verifiers are; Ian Griffiths tigriffiths@hotmail.co.uk 077 72 11 19 89 or Neal Merry  NEAL_MERRY@SKY.COM 077 49 57 39 83.

The below steps will show you how to logon to the portal and apply for a DBS.
 
1. Log onto your athletics members portal by clicking here. If this is the first time you are applying for a coaches or officials licence, you would have had an account created for you when you applied to attend a course. There are links provided if you have forgotten your username or password or if you have not been provided with one.
 
2. Once you have logged in you will see your personal details section. At the bottom of the first section shows the current status of your DBS. Red wording will show that your licence has expired or that you do not have one. Amber wording will show that your DBS is soon to expire. Green wording will show that your DBS is up-to-date and that you need not do anything.
 
3. Click on the appropriate link to update your DBS. Follow the on-screen instructions.
 
4. You will need to provide three forms of identification to the person you chose as your verifier. The online process will state who you can use as a verifier and suggest verifiers local to you. You can click here to see what identification you can use.
 
5. Applicants who completed an online DBS application will still receive a DBS certificate. If no information is found, you need not send the certificate to the UKA Welfare team.
 
6. When UKA have received electronic applications of your DBS certificate, your licence will be produced and sent out.

Applicants who do not wish to use the online application process, you can still email dbs@uka.org.uk in the traditional manner to request a paper application.
