AUSTRALIA ONLY Independent Minors

Without a parent or guardian present, a minor cannot be allowed to participate in our activities without supporting paperwork, otherwise we and our officers may end up vulnerable to legal claims from the minor or their parents. Therefore, the minimum requirement is any ONE of the following:
a) A designated guardian who is physically present, and who has produced an appropriate “Nomination of Caregiver” form (link above)
b) A Court-granted emancipation order sighted by the SCAA Board, after which the minor will be granted adult membership status if they take out membership, and a specially-marked Minor membership card will be issued for that purpose
c) Statutory declarations along the lines of those required by CentreLink ( http://www.centrelink.gov.au) must be sighted by the SCAA Board, after which the approach noted in (b) will be taken.

At a minimum, the Board would require a declaration from the minor, and two from any of their school principal, counsellor or teacher, or other authority such as police, which affirm and explain the minor’s independent status. The Board reserves the right to ignore any declarations they deem inadequate, or to request further declarations if they see fit.
