Record Check

The BCLA’s General Operating Policy states that Local Associations must implement the use of Criminal Record Checks. The SCLA Policy maintains that All Adults who are in contact with our minor athletes must submit to a Criminal Record Check. This includes Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Trainers and Officials.

This is a simple process which can be done in person at the local RCMP office, or online using the link below. The online process will take less than 3 minutes, and the results will be forwarded to the Association President.

If you prefer to Submit your request in person, please use the SCLA party id # 1457431.

Coaches

The SCLA, and our Teams, are only as good as our coaches. That is not to say that to coach you need to be Highly Skilled in Lacrosse (or coaching) but more that our Coaches need to adhere to the core principles that the Association requires us all to follow. Most important of these is our Fair Play Policy. Young Athletes need a Coach that they can respect, and trust.

We are always on the lookout for new Coaches. There is probably no better way to support your own child’s interest in sport, and learn a lot along the way, than to step in as a Coach or Assistant. If you are interested in either of these positions, please download the Coaching Application and contact our Coach Coordinator, Pamela Service.

New for 2015, in the PeeWee Bantam and Midget divisions ALL bench personnel will need to be Certified Coaches. This means that to be on the bench as a Door Person, you will need at a minimum Community Development coach certification. Novice Division and lower will still be allowed to utilize Door People who have completed the online Doorman Course through the BCLA. This Doorman Certification is only valid for two years, after which the Door Person will be required to start certification as a minimum Community Development coach.

If you have any interest in Coaching, or have questions, please contact our Coach Coordinator, Pamela Service.
