Risk Management :: Background Checks

Being a volunteer in hockey is no easy task. Volunteers are often called upon to wear many hats. At Hockey Nova Scotia, we want to do our best to ensure that our volunteers are safeguarded and not placed in a vulnerable situation without the proper qualifications.

All coaches, volunteers and anyone else who has direct contact with children are required to have the following:

* Criminal Record Check

Child Abuse Registry Check

* Respect in Sport for Coaches/Volunteers (or Speak Out if previously certified with this)
