Thank you for considering taking the first steps in applying for a coaching position within GVMBHA. It is a fun and rewarding experience!
To coach within GVMBHA, you will need to complete a Coaching Application, have a current Criminal Record Check and have a current Respect in Sport certificate.
Here are the steps for a coaching position:
1. Coaching Application - required
Complete the online coaching application form
2. Criminal Record Check - required
Ensure you have a current Criminal Records Check (CRC). We accept CRCs up to 3 years old, after that you will need to repeat the process. If you need a CRC, click on link below then keep a copy of your email to prove your CRC is in process.
Should you be asked for additional identification verification (i.e. fingerprinting), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and request a GVMBHA “volunteer” letter to take to the police station. This will ensure you will not be charged the CRC processing fee as this a FREE service provided by the police for volunteers.
3. Respect In Sport "Activity Leader" - required
If you have not completed the Respect in Sport Activity Leader course before then you will need to take the online course. The RIS expires after 5 years of completion. There is no out of pocket expense to you as GVMBHA pays the $30+ fee but you will need a login code. The course takes about 2-3 hours to complete and you can stop at any time to take a break and go back to the course later. You will receive a certificate upon successful completion of the RIS course.
If you have previously completed the Respect in Sport Activity Leader program through another organization, you don't need to retake (unless expired). Please go to https://cbha.respectgroupinc.com/ - click on the "Import A Certificate" box and follow the prompts as Cheryl our Coach Documents Manager will need a copy.
To obtain a LOGIN CODE, contact Cheryl at email@example.com
By submitting your application, you are agreeing to the "Coaches Code of Conduct" within the coaching application; the responsibility of taking the Respect in Sport Activity Leader (RIS) course and ensuring you have a current Criminal Record Check (CRC), or if already completed verification prior to March 31.
