If you have regular contact with under 18 players as a Coach, Manager, Club Welfare Officer, First Aider or Referee you are required to have a valid CRC that is registered on the FA’s Whole Game System


You can seek support in obtaining a CRC through your Club Welfare Officer or by contacting Jan.Scott@StaffordshireFA.com. They can provide you with information to complete the application on line. 


When completed, a CRC is valid for 3 years.


If you are a Club Committee Member who has an administrative role only you would not be required to complete a CRC. If you are a parent, who for example, occasionally assists in being an Assistant Referee you would not be required to complete a CRC.
