Police Checks (Wilmot Girls Hockey)

Police Check Information

WGHA requires all staff members, including managers, to have a police check (officially called a "Vulnerable Sector Check"). These police checks are valid for three years from the date of issue, which means a new one must be submitted every 3 years (per OWHA) to prevent expiry in the middle of a season.

Please note that it is not necessary to obtain a separate Vulnerable Sector Check for each organization that you volunteer with!  If you have a valid check that was completed in the past 3 years (i.e. at least 12 months from expiry), you may submit it to WGHA regardless of the organization that originally requested it.  Coaches that also volunteer in other minor sports are encouraged to re-use their existing valid police checks when applying to volunteer with WGHA.

Please note applications for police record checks can be submitted online only.  They no longer provide in-person, same day service.

By identifying yourself as a minor hockey volunteer, the cost is reduced. WGHA will reimburse your police check expense up to the volunteer cost.  If you fail to properly identify that you are a minor hockey volunteer on your records check application, any additional costs are your responsibility.
