Youth sports leagues know that change happens — sometimes in the mid-season. And if a coach drops out at the last minute, you might need to get a police record check fast.

In those cases, it’s best to be prepared. ‘Gear up’ for a quick line-up change at any point with these must-know preparation tips.

Whether you need a criminal background check for coaching sports or any other reason, here is the equipment you’ll need:

  • Your full name
  • Your birth date and details
  • Your full contact information
  • Addresses for the past five years
  • Whether you have ever been convicted of a criminal offence
  • Access to a computer or smartphone
  • Internet access
  • Email address
  • Payment information

Current first name, middle name, and last name, plus your last name at birth and any maiden names or aliases.

You will need to enter your date of birth and birth location, including city and country.

Your current address and your telephone number.

You will need to provide a full five-year residential address history, including any addresses out of the province or out of the country.

There can be no gaps in the address history.

You will need to answer ‘yes’ or ‘no.’

It used to be that you had to visit the police station to get a criminal background check — but not anymore. Most police record checks can actually be done online through background check services (like Triton Canada).

Instead of needing a car and time out of your business hours to travel to the police station, all that’s required is access to a computer or smartphone to fill out the online application.
