- Police Vulnerable Screening Check (PVSC)
Effective as of the 2017/18 Hockey Season, the NLSA requires every three years years that Police Vulnerable Screening Check (PVSC) must be competed for any person affiliated with a NLSA team that may possibly be in an unsupervised setting with one of the players. Also, a yearly Criminal Declaration form is required for the volunteer to remain approved by NLSA. This NLSA requirement is for teams Minor Novice and above. This must include, but is not limited to all Coaches, Trainer, Dressing Room Supervisors (see below OHF Two Deep Dressing Room Policy), etc.
All teams must forward the a list of any Volunteers who need to be approved by NLSA Director Risk Management. The NLSA Director, Risk Management will notify each team official who requires a Police Vulnerable Screening Check (PVSC) for the current hockey season. Once the PVSC is completed by Police, the original copy with the emboss seal of the completed PVSC results can be dropped off in the black NLSA Administration dropbox at Carling arena for review and approval. The PVSC results will be returned to the Volunteer, as NLSA does not retain any of this personal information once the approved PVSC has been entered into the Volunteers Hockey Canada profile.
