Respect in Sport-Activity Leader:
Returning Coaches: Hockey Alberta has extended all valid RESPECT IN SPORT - PARENT and ACTIVITY LEADER CERTIFICATIONS by one year. This change is reflected in the Hockey Canada Registry only and not in the individual's Respect in Sport account as it is specific to Hockey Alberta only. Therefore, if Respect in Sport was taken in 2017, the expiry date is now May 1, 2022 and re-certification for the 2021-2022 season will no longer be required.
New Coaches: All coaches will need to complete the Respect In Sport- Coach/Activity Leaders Certification. This will need to be renewed every four years. If you are unsure if your certificate is expired, please follow this link.

Vulnerable Sector and Criminal Record Check
Every two seasons our team officials are required to have an updated Vulnerable Sector and Criminal Record Check completed. Here is the volunteer letter that you will need to take with you to your Local RCMP station. These completed checks will be handed in to our Coach Coordinator.
