Information regarding Criminal Records Checks (CRCs):

Olds Minor Hockey Association requires all coaches and active (carded) managers to submit a CRC BEFORE the start of the hockey season. If you are considering coaching/managing this season, please read the following information.
  • You must get the check done at the detachment in or nearest the home where you reside. (For example: If you are a resident of Sundre but are coaching a AA team in Olds, you must go to the Sundre detachment.)  
  • The RCMP asks that a cover letter stating the organization requesting the CRC accompany the application. The Olds Detachment has a cover letter on file for all applicants. This tells them what kind of check is needed.  In this case it's the "vulnerable sector" check that is needed for coaches/adults dealing with minors.
  • Two pieces of ID are required. One must be photo ID.
  • In the event that the person applying for the CRC has a BIRTH DATE that matches a Flagged Birth date of an offender, etc, fingerprinting would need to be done.  
Final Note:  Your CRC must come from an R.C.M.P. Detachment, not from an online source.  A child welfare check from the province of Alberta is not sufficient - a CRC is required.
