All Team Officials on all West Zone Teams must complete a Criminal & Vulnerable Sector Police Information Check before they are allowed on the Bench.  This Police Check must be completed prior to the start of the season. Once completed and approved by West Zone the clearance is good for up to 3 years. 

Please note it police checks are not transferable from organization to organization.

Coaching Multiple Teams

If you are a head coach that decides to coach multiple teams that play on the same day, the EMSA Portal will do it’s best to accommodate both teams and work it out so that the games do not overlap.  However, this is NOT guaranteed to work out perfectly!  Due to the many parameters that are in place, the sheer amount of games and multiple conflicts we have there could be a few games that will conflict with one another.  The coach will need to be prepared with a backup plan, such as having their assistant coaches or manager take care of one of the teams for those few games.  If there are no registered assistant coaches or managers on the team that are able to help out the EMSA office can do up a special permission letter for the conflicting games so that a parent or another coach from a different team can go on the bench and help out that day.
