Coaches Info


Volunteers (community coaches) need the following requirements to coach in our School District:

1.) Criminal Record Check – usually takes a minimum of two weeks to process and for the school to receive the clearance letter.  Clearance letters must be received by the school prior to driving any students other than your own. Please use the following link and access code: Link: Access Code: Q28Z744XR6

2.) Safeschool Training – As of Sept 2023 all SD61 coaches must complete the free, e-learning Safe Sport Training provided by the Coaching Association of Canada PRIOR to coaching a secondary sports team.  Please use this link to complete the training course

Email a screenshot of the completed course.

3.) Concussion Training

BCSS created a mandate in 2020 to have all coaches, teacher sponsors and managers in the province to have Concussion training. Training has to be recertified every 2 years. The good news is that it is free and you just have to send me the certificate at the end of the training. BCSS has stated that coaches must have the training to coach at provincial championships and may request to see it, but also they can look up coaches on the CATT website themselves. Please email the certificate once the course is completed.  Here is the link to the training program:
