The letter to accompany you to the RCMP can be downloaded for print on the "FORMS" Page. The original police check report OR copy of the above mentioned must be received by November 1, of the current season, in order to volunteer in the capacity of coach, assistant coach, or trainer The original police check must be forwarded when it is ready.
The report should be sent in a sealed envelope to:
