Volunteer Screening Policy: (Effective August 1/ 2017)

Ringette BC is responsible to its Members for doing everything reasonable to provide a safe and secure environment for participants in its programs, activities and events. Screening of volunteers is an important part of providing a safe sporting environment and has become a common practice among sport organizations that provide programs and services.

17.1 Application of the Volunteer Screening policy.

 1) This policy applies to all volunteers who work with athletes and / or who occupy positions of trust and authority within Ringette BC. Such positions include:

a) Coaches, assistant coaches, trainer, team manager or other team staff positions.

b) All on-ice “helpers” and dressing room “supervisors” regardless of the age of the children being helped / supervised or the relative importance of the helper / supervisor.

c) All Division Coordinators.

d) Any persons appointed to accompany a Ringette BC, League or club-Association team to an event or competition.

e) All Board Members.

2) Exemption: Event volunteers not supervising or alone with children are exempt from the requirement (e.g. 50/50 sales, scorekeepers, etc.).

17.2 Process for screening.

1) Each member League and club-Association will have a form called “Volunteer Screening Form”, posted on their website or available by email or telephone request to the executive of the League or club-Association.

2) The Volunteer Screeing Form is to be used by all persons required to be screened without exception. 

3) The Volunteer Screening Form must provide fields for volunteers to provide personal identification information, and for the volunteer to state their preferred role. 

4) All potential volunteers submitting their volunteer interest to the association in the capacities listed above will be screened using Police Information Checks before being awarded a volunteer position. Police Information Checks shall be provided by law enforcement or other government agency. 

5) There will be no exceptions. 

6) Individuals whose Police Information Check (or voluntary disclosure form) returns confirmation of any Relevant Offence will not be allowed to participate in any volunteer position for any Ringette BC Member Association covered under the Scope of this policy. 

7) Ringette BC expects and requires documentation of compliance with this expectation that Leagues and club-Associations will manage the screening process for their volunteers. Local club-Associations will be responsible for any cost of police checks. 

Police Information Checks are valid for a maximum period of two years.
