Criminal Record Checks
This year SMHA has enrolled in a new CRC procedure. All SMHA volunteers will need an up to date criminal record check done before the October 31st deadline. If you have done a CRC is the past, please contact email@example.com
to confirm your CRC is in good standing with SMHA. CRC's are good for 3 years, so if you had one done during/before the 2012 season, you will need to have it updated.
This year SMHA has enrolled in an online process through the Ministry of Justice. Full details are available on the Volunteer Certification

SMHA Volunteers Update
BC Hockey has made changes to the expiration dates of the Respect in Sport/Speak out clinics that all SMHA volunteers must have in order to be on a team roster. Beginning this season, Respect in Sport/Speak Out will now have an expiry date of 4 years. This means that any MHA member that took either Respect in Sport or Speak Out from the 2010-2011 season or before will now be expired and need to re-certify.
Also beginning this 2014-2015 season, the expiration date for HCSP (Hockey Canada Safety People) has been reverted back to 3 years from 6 years.
If you plan on volunteering for your son or daughter’s team this season as a coach, Safety Person or manager and you took Respect in Sport or Speak Out prior to the 2010-2011 season, you will have to take the clinic again before December 1, 2014.
Please contact Nancy Moniz at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you have any questions.

Equal Ice Time
The Vancouver Island Amateur Hockey Association (VIAHA) recently released a bulletin regarding the Equal Ice Time policy for minor hockey teams on Vancouver Island. The VIAHA regulation on equal ice time, directed at both recreational and competetive teams, states that all players receive equal ice time as much as possible.
From the bulletin "We are not in the business to win games this is left to our Junior and Professional counterparts, in minor hockey we are in the business to expose children to hockey and to learn valuable life skills that they will hopefully take with them into adulthood."
The bulletin is available here
