Criminal Record Check and Vulnerable Persons Check
Richmond Jets Minor Hockey Association requires that all volunteers within the Association obtain a criminal record check (CRC) and vulnerable persons check (VPC). Once they have been completed, they are considered valid for three (3) seasons.
To obtain a Criminal Record Check and Vulnerable Person Check:
Visit the BC Ministry of Justice website.
RJMHA access code: RDXVQWH9CU
The completed criminal record check will be forwarded directly from the Ministry of Justice to the RJMHA Director of Risk Management.
Please note: If your birthdate matches a known sex offender, you will be required to provide fingerprints and the process may take additional time. The purpose of the fingerprinting is to ensure there has not been a name change in an attempt to avoid detection; it is not because of suspicion of you personally.
Should you have any questions regarding the criminal record check process, please contact RJMHA Risk Management at firstname.lastname@example.org or BC Hockey at email@example.com.
Being part of a team, disputes will arise. When these conflicts do arise, it is important to follow the dispute resolution process and ensure there is respectful and open communication.
Every effort should be made to resolve the conflict at the team level.
This season BC Hockey and PCAHA will continue to push forward with the full implementation of electronic gamesheets.
