The Policy (London Devilettes)

PrintThe Policy

The London Devilettes Girls Hockey Association policy in relation to "Police Checks" for coaches, bench staff, dressing room volunteers, and on ice helpers is as follows to ensure we are in alignment with OWHA Screening Policies.

Year 1    Criminal Record Check (CRC) & Vulnerable Sector Screening (VSS)

Year 2    Criminal Offence Declaration Form (CODF)

Year 3    Criminal Offence Declaration Form (CODF)

Year 4    Criminal Record Check (CRC) & Vulnerable Sector Screening (VSS)

Year 5    Criminal Offence Declaration Form (CODF)

Year 6    Criminal Offence Declaration Form (CODF)

The policy runs in a three year cycle.  The first year a volunteer meeting the criteria (working with children 8 to 17 years) will be required to obtain a Vulnerable Sector Screening (VSS) and Criminal Record Check (CRC).

Volunteers living within the City of London can visit the London Police Headquarters, 601 Dundas Street, London to obtain the VSS/CRC. Those living outside of the City of London must visit their local police service to obtain these documents. VSS/CRC checks can also be obtained online.
 
For next two years of the cycle the volunteer must print out, complete and sign the 
Criminal Offence Declaration Form located on the Devilettes website under "Policies & Forms” ( Coaches – Police Check Policy)
 
The London Devilettes will accept police checks used for other organizations (eg soccer, baseball) as long as the police check was obtained within the 6 months prior to submission to the London Devilettes.
 
Anyone that has been away from the organization for a period of one year or more must re-submit for the “VSS/ CRC”.

Anyone that has a police check on file with the London Devilettes dating back to 2013-2014 season will be required to submit for an updated “VSS/CRC”.
 
The head coach will be responsible for collecting the police checks/declarations from all the members of their team staff and then submit to Ryan Valiquette at the first coaches meeting in September. Failure to submit the required forms will result in an immediate suspension of the individual until the required form is submitted.
