Below is a list of requirements/information that must be submitted to the Coaching Committee by:

·       October 1st for rep teams, or

If any of these requirements are not provided to the Coaching Committee by the above date, the applicable team staff member is not permitted on the bench or the ice until the requirement is met and approved by us.

All team staff, and On-Ice Helpers, must complete the online Team Staff Application Form (see our website…. www.woolwichwild.com).  This form provides us with most of the information listed below.

·        Name, email and phone number for each team staff member and On-Ice Helper.

·        For each rostered team staff member and team Manager we also require:

o   For coaches, the applicable coaching certificate, the OWHA certificate number and expiry date.

If the required coaching course is not available until after the submission date, proof of registration in the applicable course and the date of that course must be provided to the Coaching Committee.  The Coaching Committee may then grant permission for the team staff member to continue on the bench or ice until the date of the course.  That permission does not extend to any tournaments.

Police Check and Criminal Offence Declaration

All team staff, and On-Ice Helpers age 18 and over, must have a Police Vulnerable Sector Check every three years.  Forms are available at any police station.  Volunteers with the Woolwich Girls Minor Hockey Association are entitled to a discounted fee for this police check.  A letter which states you are a volunteer is available on our website and should be submitted when the police check is requested.

Once obtained, the validated Police Vulnerable Sector Check form must be shown to a member of the Coaching Committee who will confirm it is acceptable and record the date.  The police check must have been completed within the 6 months prior to submission or a new, updated police check will be required.  The Team Staff member/On-Ice Helper keeps the actual paperwork, we do not retain it.

All team staff, and On-Ice Helper, must also complete and sign the OWHA Criminal Offence Declaration at the start of every season.  This can be done by completing the online RAMP registration.

If the Police Vulnerable Record Check is not provided to us by October 1st for rep teams or November 1st for local league teams, the applicable team staff member is not permitted on the bench or the ice until the requirement is met and approved by us.

On-Ice Helpers

Head Coaches may also appoint On-Ice Helpers. 

On-Ice Helpers under the age of 18 must:

  • be at least 2 years older than the players on the team,
  • be a registered player with a hockey association affiliated with Hockey Canada, and
  • wear full hockey equipment including a properly fastened CSA approved helmet and face mask.  This is mandatory and required by our insurer.

On-Ice Helpers 18 years of age and older must:

  • have a valid Police Vulnerable Sector Check, and
  • complete a Team Staff Application Form, including the OWHA Criminal Offence Declaration, and
  • be a registered player or rostered team staff member with a hockey association affiliated with Hockey Canada, OR
  • sign a Waiver_and_Release_of_Liability_Form_--_W0921.  This form should be submitted to Coaching Committee.

If a volunteer does not meet these requirements, they are not permitted to be an On-Ice Helper.  This is an insurance requirement and no exceptions will be permitted.

Volunteers that are not a registered player or rostered team staff member with a hockey association affiliated with Hockey Canada can instead become a team staff member and be rostered with the team.

The Executive must approve all On-Ice Helpers.

On-Ice Helpers may be interested in taking the online Respect in Sport Activity Leader course.
