C. Certificate of Conduct and Vulnerable Sector Check (Extremely Important)
A reminder that any Volunteers (Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Managers, etc) who will be involved with Minor Softball Teams at any Softball Newfoundland and Labrador sanctioned events this summer (Provincials, Qualifiers, Moss, etc) must have a current Certificate of Conduct AND Vulnerable Sector Check completed before the season starts.
Both are free to Volunteers through the RCMP or RNC if applications are accompanied by a letter from the President of your Association verifying you as a Volunteer.
Softball Newfoundland and Labrador will expect Association Presidents to provide verification of these documents before teams are registered with Softball Newfoundland and Labrador.
Do not delay as this process may take several weeks to complete.
For more information, please email Softball Newfoundland and Labrador at firstname.lastname@example.org
