Criminal Record Check (CRC)
Risk management allows organizations to identify and assess possible sources of harm, and take steps to decrease or prevent it from occurring. It must include evidence of procedures, processes and documents which show an organization’s commitment to maintaining the safety and wellbeing of children and young people.
This pertains to every team official, referee, volunteer, coordinator, employee, or director with an affiliated BC Soccer organization, as well as anyone who in their duty with the club is responsible to handle financials of any kind, must have on file the results of a Criminal Record Check completed within the previous 36 months.
Team officials must have this done BEFORE the start of the season or the team will not be registered and therefore not eligible to play. It is the responsibility of the Club Risk Management Person and the Club Registrar to ensure that only team officials who have a valid and current CRC are registered with VYSA.
Each organization affiliated with the Association will have a system in place for its volunteers and employees to complete the criminal record checks. For further information please contact Kieran Siddall.
