Sports associations are a staple of Canadian life. Whether it’s hockey, lacrosse, skiing in the winter, soccer or baseball in the summer, basketball, and beyond, sports teams make up a big part of our culture – particularly when it comes to childhood.

For community members who want to give back, parents who want to share a love of sports with their children, and more, volunteer coaching might have crossed your mind.

Many local coaching associations will require interested applicants to complete a police record check*. Often this must be done before a coach or volunteer can be allowed on the team.

In the past, this would mean a trip down to the police station for the would-be coach or volunteer, and a potentially lengthy waiting period. Depending on the time of year and size of the community, a record check may take days – or even weeks – to complete.

If time is of the essence, this obviously isn’t ideal. And even if time isn’t a factor, there’s an easier way: get a police record check from the comfort of your own home.

With online background check services, like Triton Canada, you can get a police record check without ever going to the police station.
