A MESSAGE FROM LEAGUE SECRETARY DEBBIE KNOWLES
Dear KYFL Member Clubs
In addition to support already offered by the KYFL to help member clubs qualify their coaching staff and obtain/retain their Charter Standard we will this season (2014/15) be offering further support by way of refunding the cost of one standalone First Aid course, one standalone Safeguarding course and one D&BS Application.
All 3 of these qualifications are renewable after 3 years so we hope that offering to refund the cost of one of each per club this season will help support clubs to keep up to date and achieve/retain their Charter Standard. First Aid: To obtain a refund of the £20 cost of one standalone First Aid course simply provide the KYFL Treasurer with a copy of a certificate for a First Aid course completed this season by a coach attached on the KYFL website to one of your clubs current teams.
Safeguarding: To obtain a refund of the £20 cost of one Safeguarding course simply provide the KYFL Treasurer with a copy of a certificate for a Safeguarding course completed this season by a coach attached on the KYFL website to one of your clubs current teams. This can be either an on-line course or a physically attended one.
D&BS: The KYFL will refund the cost of one Accepted Disclosure and Barring Service Application per club for the 2014/15 Season. For online applications this will be £10 and for paper versions £20. The refund can be obtained in respect of one coach attached to one of your clubs current teams on the KYFL website for an application submitted this season whether it is a new application or a renewal.
As receipts are not provided as a matter of course for D&BS checks to obtain one refund as described please submit a request with details of the coach/team the application was completed for to KYFL Treasurer signed by your club treasurer/chair on club headed paper.
NB: First Aid/Safeguarding refunds are for offered for renewals after the 3 years from first qualification not when completed as part of a Level 1 coaching course.
Level 1 Coaching Certificate Support: A reminder to all clubs that your league will support your club in qualifying all your coaches as Level 1 by refunding £25 per course for coaches attached to your youth teams. All you need to do to obtain your £25 is to provide proof of completion of the course this season by sending a copy of each certificate to the KYFL Treasurer Sharon Martin (details on the KYFL website).The qualified coaches must be attached to a current youth team within your club on the KYFL website.
