  Target Dates – From April 2005 onwards, we will be asking all coaches to undertake a CRB check. Due to the volume of
  checks to be completed we will try to phase the majority of checks as outlined below. However if you would like to, or need
  to have your check done sooner we would welcome your application. We would prefer you to apply for your check sooner
  rather than later as we intend to have all checks completed before April 2006.
                     Scotland and Wales                                  April - June 2005
