Coaches (Burlington Minor Lacrosse)


Coaching Certification

Rep & Field Coaches

All Rep & Field lacrosse coaches must be certified, completed their Making Headway course and have provided a Criminal Record Check (Vulnerable Sector) which is dated no later then the previous calendar year or an OLA Offense Declaration form.

OLA Coaching requirements can be found here.

Dates and locations of Coaching Clinics can be found on the OLA website.

House League Coaches

All head coaches and assistant coaches must have a Criminal Record Check (Vulnerable Sector) which is dated no later then the previous calendar year or an OLA Offense Declaration form. 

Criminal Record Checks (CRC)

ALL OLA bench personnel (coaches, staff, trainers etc) who are 18 years of age must submit a current Criminal Record Check (Vulnerable Sector) dated no later then the previous calendar year.

Your CRC will be valid for indefinitely as long as an OLA Offense Declaration is signed each consecutive year. In the event that a volunteer does not register for a year or more, a new CRC will be required.

Sterling BackCheck - Ontario Lacrosse Association will also accept a background check from Sterling BackCheck.  These are less expensive than a regular Police Check and we get a response within 48 hours after you complete the submission.  Please contact our Privacy Officer (Jamie Sproat) for more details.

Concussion Awareness (Rowan's Law)

If a player leaves a game due to a head injury which is diagnosed but a medical professional or suspected by the team Trainer the BMLA requires that the head coach or trainer obtain a Doctors note stating that the player is fit to return to playing/practicing. The VP of Rep or House League must also be notified that a player has left the game/practice with a head injury and that proper documentation supports the player's return to Lacrosse.
