Registering as a Team Manager / RTO

Thank you for volunteering to be a coach/manager or committee member of Oatley Football Club.

The official term for the role is RTO – Registered Team Official.

What is a RTO?  It stands for Registered Team Official, and each team needs at least one in attendance to start a game. It is expected that each team has two with this usually being the coach and the manager. It is also their responsibility to complete and submit the match sheet each week. It is OK to have as many RTO’s in a team as you would like.

Working with Children Check

Every RTO of a team with players aged under 18 must also have a current Working with Children Check number.

Whilst getting this check will involve a small amount of your time, it is free (for volunteers) and is valid for 5 years.  Unfortunately we can no longer accept a request to be a coach/manager/RTO without this number (even if you are coaching/managing your own child’s team).
