Volunteer Screening & Risk Management

Volunteer Screening & Risk Management

Please be aware of our sport policy on Minimum Mandatory Coaching Qualifications

There are values-based and well-researched reasons for these training standards for our coaches. 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 job as youth activity programmers. Here are just a few online resources to help you and your club develop your own Volunteer Screening policy & procedures:
