Police Records Check

Police Records Check


The Ontario Soccer Association requires that individuals with access to vulnerable people, such as young athletes, undergo a Police Records Check.  In order 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.


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.
