Police Records Check

Police Records Check

Ontario Soccer requires that individuals with access to vulnerable people, such as young athletes, undergo a police records check.  To ensure the safety of all our players, we require that a police records check be undertaken as follows:

For coaches of U9 to U12 players - every two years
For coaches of U13 to U18 players - annually
For coaches of U5 to U8, police record checks are not mandatory as parents must be at the field with their child.

Note: Any player of 12 and under cannot simply be dropped off at the field. Therefore, at these ages, a parent should be at the field at all times.


The following documents must be submitted to Ottawa Police Services:

  1. A completed "Police Records Check for Service With the Vulnerable Sector"form
  2. Two pieces of valid identification (including 1 piece of photo identification)
  3. A letter from the Gloucester Dragons stating that your are a volunteer coach with the club (you may contact the Club to receive this letter.  The Ottawa Police Service does not charge a fee for volunteers.
You must deliver your Completed Police Record Checks to the Club immediately upon receipt.  All documents will be kept on file with the Club.
