The submission of these documents is the responsibility of the On-Ice Official (referees and linesmen) as well as Team Officials (Coach, Asst. Coach, Trainer, Manager, Volunteer) for the purpose of registering for the season.

On Ice Officials & Team Officials under the age of 18

Due to changes imposed by the new Police Record Checks Reform Act (PRCRA) legislation, effective November 1st, 2018, a police check for persons under 18 years of age UNLESS applying for a position with a government agency (federal, provincial or municipal), will not be processed.

Therefore, applicants under the age of 18 will not be required to obtain a Police Record Check OR signing of a declaration form is not required.

On Ice Officials 18 years of age and over are required to submit a Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC).

The renewal period for your VSC will be every 3 years. (Example: Year one VSSC, year two Criminal Offence Declaration Form, year three Criminal Offence Declaration Form and year four VSC.) All On Ice Officials must adhere to this Policy.

If you are a first-time official or Coach 18 years of age and older you are required to submit your Vulnerable Sector Check through the link above.  If you do not have your VSC at the time of your clinic or Officiating School and have initiated the process please submit the receipt through the same process indicated above.

For On-Ice Officials, if you are recertifying and your screening has expired, you must submit a new VSC by using the link above. If you do not have your VSC prior to registering for a re-certification clinic and have initiated the process, please submit the receipt using the online platform. This is a condition of being able to access the registration process.
