REMINDER TO ALL COACHES / MANAGERS

WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR CRIMINAL RECORDS CHECK CLEARANCE IN THE MAIL, PLEASE DELIVER TO THE HAWKS OFFICE AT CENTENNIAL ARENA - TO THE ATTENTION OF TOM SAUNDERS

All volunteers in minor hockey require the following:  1) Speak Out, 2) Child Abuse Registry clearance, 3) Criminal Records Check clearance.  

Hockey NS : “No person will be allowed on any team staff  after December 31st 2007 with out proper  HNS certification.   

Have your team representative contact Tom Saunders arrange registration for required courses and certification. All volunteers must have the Child Abuse Registry and Police Background checks as well as the speak out sessions.  At least one coach must have the NCCP level 1 and one coach on the bench must have the trainers (safety) course.

 


Also, there are still several coaches who have not completed the criminal records (CR) and child abuse registry clearance (CAR) forms for the 2007/8 season.  It is your responsibility to confirm with the Assn's Risk Mgmt coordinator that you have these clearances.  Please be in touch with the office to confirm your status in this regard, on your team.   December 31, 2007 Hockey NS will be provided the forms for HHMHA.  If yours is not in there, they will be advising you to step down.   Let that not be you.  Thank you for your cooperation - it is appreciated.

 It is the responsibility of the individual to ensure they are properly certified.
