RECORD CHECK REQUIREMENTS FOR SPMHA VOLUNTEER TEAM OFFICIALS
The Board of Directors of Sherwood Park Minor Hockey Association is accountable to its membership, and as the program grows, so does the accountability. The hockey programs that SPMHA are mandated to provide are specifically youth oriented. The accountability to its membership, therefore, becomes high priority due to the potential vulnerability of its participants.
SPMHA requires that all volunteer team officials must complete and provide two separate background searches.
The first is a Child Social Services Intervention Check, obtained through Child and Family Services, and the second, a Criminal Record Clearance Check and a Vulnerable Sector Check, obtained through the RCMP, prior to being an approved official on an assigned team. Please note that this clearance may take time to complete and we ask that you begin the process as soon as possible.
Both of these services are required by Dec 1 of the current hockey season otherwise the official may be suspended from assisting with the team.
Nothing is required from SPMHA to get this check done. Simply visit the office below with your identification and request a Child Social Services Intervention Check. You will be required to fill out a form and the search results shall be mailed to you. Upon receipt you need to drop those results off at the SPMHA office at Millennium Place or scan and email the results to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that this search can take a month or longer to receive. Upon applying you will receive a receipt from Child and Family Services. If the search results are not received by the Dec 1 deadline provide the receipt until the search is received.
