Coaching Requirements

Thank you for volunteering to be a coach. Below you will find some clear instructions on how to complete the Risk Assessment process.

Risk Management clearances must be completed and approved in order for a coach or manager to be approved on a roster. All staff, paid or volunteer, as well as Board members, are required to complete Risk Management as well. The link to the Risk Management requirements can be found here.
