The South Metro Junior Football League are proud to announce that BlueQ have come on board as a new Preferred Partner for Qualification Management and Compliance.

BlueQ is a safe and secure online platform for qualifications storage that allows users to access all of their qualifications – including coaching accreditation, Working With Children checks, first aid certificates, university degrees etc. With BlueQ users can not only store their documents (either publicly or privately) and share those with employers or managing organisations (such as your footy club).

It also alerts users to the impending expiration of qualifications and sends reminders for renewal, so you can always keep your qualifications current and valid.

The SMJFL will be using the BlueQ platform to run coaches accreditation audits and ensure they all comply with minimum accreditation requirements. Additionally, all  club committees will have a better coverage of the qualifications of all of their volunteers.

This will enhance the League’s playing environment and improve the safety of SMJFL players both on match-days and at training.

BlueQ Co-Founder Nathan Merzvinskis said that he was looking working with the SMJFL and says the partnership would be of great benefit to the League and it’s clubs.

“BlueQ is proud to be working with the SMJFL to increase compliance, minimise risk and reduce the administrative burden faced by clubs and administrators across the league,” Mr Merzvinskis said.

“We believe that by using BlueQ, the SMJFL and its associated clubs have the best processes in place to ensure a safe and compliant competition. By reducing the administrative burden associated with compliance, BlueQ will enable these clubs to focus on what they do best; fostering an environment for great junior footy.”

The SMJFL looks forward this exciting new partnership with BlueQ.

All Coaches and Trainers within the SMJFL will be sent a personalised invitation in the second week of the season. If you do not volunteer with your club in one of these match-day roles, you may still sign up for a personal account at
