Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check was previously known as Criminal Records Bureau (CRB). The DBS enables Hockey Wales and its clubs and organisations to make informed recruitment decisions. Any individuals wishing to work with young people in hockey are required to undertake an enhanced DBS check and / or barred list check.

Please remember DBS checks should not be used in isolation, they should be one part of the process to determine if someone is suitable to work with young people in a particular role.

Hockey Wales is committed to providing guidance and support to hockey clubs and organisations to ensure that all children in hockey participate in an environment that is both safe and enjoyable.
