Police Information Checks

The WSCR Communication Association requires all Coaches, including On-Field Coaching Support volunteers, to have a current and valid security check completed, to ensure the safest possible environment for our minor players.

Security clearances are valid for three years from the year it was processed.

ALREADY HAVE A VALID POLICE CHECK?

If you have a valid one already, please email a copy of it to pic@wscr.ca. PLEASE include the first and last name of the volunteer in the subject heading, and include first and last name in the document file name. Alternatively, you can also go into the police information check website and share it with WEST SPRINGS/COUGAR RIDGE COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION.

APPLYING FOR A POLICE CHECK

Here are the steps:

STEP 1: Download the Volunteer Letter here: LINK. You will need to print it, add your name and upload it during the application process.
