Respect in Sport

Criminal Record Check (CRC) for Coaches

Rule of Two

The “Rule of Two” should be used to protect minor athletes. This rule means that more than one adult should be present in situations where an athlete is potentially vulnerable. For example, a junior curling team going on the road should be accompanied by a coach who has passed a Criminal Record Check as well as a parent, guardian or chaperone who has also passed a Criminal Record Check. This ensures that a coach does not get into a situation where he or she is alone with an athlete that he or she is not related to. A team with a minor on it who is curling alongside an adult (19+) should also ensure that a parent/guardian/chaperone with a Criminal Record Check is on hand. A coach/parent/guardian/chaperone can get a free Criminal Record Check through Curl BC. For more on this service, visit: https://www.curlbc.ca/member-resources/criminal-record-checks/
