Vulnerable Sector Search
All coaches and individuals that volunteer with SWEMBA are required to have a vulnerable sector check done. These background checks are designed to ensure that our kids have a safe place to learn and develop. Background checks must be done each year and are not transferable between sports. For example, if you received a background check as a hockey coach 6 months prior to this, you must apply for a new one.
This process must be completed with the results turned into SWEMBA before the specific teams season begins.
- A request for Vulnerable Sector Check on SWEMBA letter head signed by an executive will be given to each coach/volunteer. To request this letter contact a SWEMBA executive.
- Bring this letter along with 2 pieces of Government issued photo ID to an Edmonton Police Service detachment: You will be contacted by the EPS when this process is complete and the results are ready to be picked up. It is very common for fingerprints to be required, in this event you will need to schedule an appointment with the EPS. Finger prints are electronic and each appointment is approximately one hour, with results usually being ready to be taken home at the end of the appointment.
- This background check will then need to be delivered to a SWEMBA executive. OR
Scan your background check and email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
