Criminal Record Check Policy Procedures

As per Hockey Saskatchewan Regulations, all registered team officials over the age of 18 are responsible for providing a current Criminal Occurrence Security Check (COSC)/Criminal Record Check (CRC)/Vulnerable Sector Check to their registering hockey association.

Each local Hockey Association will develop and/or maintain procedures for collection and record keeping adhering to this policy with strict privacy guidelines in place. Further to the aforementioned, each Hockey Association will also ensure secure storage, handling and disposal of all related documents and electronic files.

It is mandatory for all Officials over the age of 18 within the Saskatchewan Officiating Development Program to complete and provide a Criminal Record Check and Vulnerable Sector Check every 3 years and submit the checks directly to Hockey Saskatchewan prior to officiating.

Hockey Saskatchewan requires all CRCs be entered into the Hockey Canada Registry by January 10th of the current season. CRCs will be valid for a 3-year period.
