Volunteer Screening & Risk Management
Please be aware of CCC’s policy on Minimum Mandatory Coaching Qualifications. The NCCP Coaching Workshops are well worth the time and your coaches & volunteers will thank you!
There are good, well-researched reasons behind the requirement for minimum training standards. The coaching workshops are all about providing a safe, enjoyable sport experience for children – so that children will chose sport over less desirable activities as they get older (research shows that more coach training = lower drop out rates for children 14 and younger).
Volunteer screening is a critical aspect of our jobs as youth activity programmers. Here are just a few online resources to help you and your club develop your own Volunteer Screening policy & procedures:
- Best Practice Guidelines for Screening Volunteers (Public Safety Canada)
- What is Screening? (Voluneer Canada)
- Commit to Kids
- Respect in Sport
- Private Clubs & Club Teams – A Risk Management Challenge
Please contact us if you have any questions!
In February 2019, the CCSAM Board of Directors pledged to align our practices with Phase 1 of the Responsible Coaching Movement and is committed to ensuring that our athletes and coaches are protected.
