Summer is here and, with it, summer sports leagues.

T-ball, baseball, soccer, football, swimming lessons, and more are all part of the summer fun for children across Canada. Summer sports leagues pack a lot of games and a lot of fun into the two short months that school is out.

However, many leagues run on volunteers and one thing can derail even the most enthusiastic team: mid-season coaching changes.

Life happens, and some of the people who signed up to coach or volunteer in the spring might not be able to make the commitment any longer. If that occurs, you need to find a replacement — and fast. And it has to be a replacement who meets league standards.

For instance, if all of your coaches have completed criminal record checks, when you have a volunteer or parent step up to the plate, he or she will need to comply as well. But doing a police check the traditional way – going to the station, filling out the paperwork, and waiting for the results – can take up time you don’t have.

There’s a solution: an online background check.

Using Triton Canada’s background check services, a replacement coach or volunteer could fill out the application form online, submit their information, and have their results within 15 minutes. You could even conduct your background check between matches!

We have relationships with the RCMP and local police forces across the country. This is the one of the fastest ways to get a criminal background check and you can trust its accuracy.

Turnaround times depend on receiving complete paperwork during the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday, except for holidays.

With online volunteer background checks, summer sports leagues can navigate mid-season coaching changes with ease.
