Reporting an Incident
Sometimes tempers fray during a game or misunderstandings occur and someone oversteps the mark and causes injury or offence to another person. If you feel that something serious has occurred, you should make a formal report.
Football South Coast (FSC) has developed a Management of Incidents and Injuries Policy to ensure any injuries or incidents are reported and dealt with in an appropriate and timely manner as determined by FSC and/ or any affiliated organisations.
For the purpose of this policy, FSC has provided the following definitions:
An Incident is
> An incident that may involve/require police intervention including violence, use of weapons, or illegal drugs
> An incident involving allegations of a child protection nature.
> An incident that may generate unfavourable media and / or community attention for the football club and Football South Coast.
An Injury is defined as a misadventure that requires:
> Professional medical attention; and / or
> Will require an insurance claim to be submitted.
