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.


First of all report the incident to the Senior Ground Marshall. They can either provide you with a form on the spot or you can download one from here.
