Child Safe Environments

DanceSport SA is very supportive of State and National regulatory bodies seeking to ensure DanceSport members are screened for Child Safe Environments. Across Australia regulatory bodies and increasingly looking to ensure Child Safe Environments are maintained and supported by local sporting and nonsporting bodies. DanceSport SA is now in a position to provide support for DSA members in SA seeking a DSCI check, to ensure they are screened according to Legislation enacted in July 2019. DSA members who officiate, coach, adjudicate or volunteer on a regular basis, need to be screened. Volunteers for DSA (SA) can have their DSCI completed for FREE, by submitting your details, including contact details and email address to DSA SA, who will then initiate the screening process locally, on their behalf. Send your request and details to the DSA (SA) Executive Officer:

DSA SA is RECOMMENDING that ALL Coaches, Event Promoters, Adjudicators, Scrutineers and Volunteers who are involved in any DanceSport event or activity where children are in attendance, should ensure that they have a CURRENT WWCC

If you complete a Volunteers WWCC, THEN, if you decide/need to "work" with Children, then a separate WWCC will be required.

If you seek a WWCC that covers you for working with children then you are also covered as a volunteer

A WWCC lasts for 5 years

Ensure that you apply for your DSCI Screening Check well in advance of any expiring screens, as the process takes 3 weeks to complete.

DanceSport Australia (SA) is working hard to maintain a Child Safe Environment.

Please submit a record of your UI [Unique ID for a Valid WWCC] to DanceSport Australia SA - we are reequired to maintain records of WWCC for our membership

Members and the General Public can seek further information by sending an email to the Executive Officer: or seek further regulatory information at
