The significant effect WSA partner Sport:80 is having on Welsh Gymnastics member experience
Welsh Sports Association (WSA) partner Sport:80 is providing its innovative platform to member organisation Welsh Gymnastics, simplifying the NGB’s DBS checking process as well as wider member experience.
Welsh Gymnastics has incorporated the WSA’s DBS system for sport and leisure, into the Sport:80 membership management system, allowing the organisation to have further control of the DBS process and enable member clubs to undertake the process directly.
90 Gymnastics clubs now have access to the fully bilingual DBS system. The Gymnastics integration allows users to process their DBS checks via their Sport:80 Platform profile and is entirely web-based, so is available 24/7 from any location with an accessible internet connection.
Over 350 organisations across the UK and across various sectors now utilise the WSA DBS service for sport and leisure.
