Coaches (Burlington Minor Lacrosse)


Coaching With the BMLA

Do you have any of the following?

  • Lacrosse experience (any level, any discipline)
  • Coaching experience in another sport
  • Management, coaching or training experience through your employment
  • Energy and enthusiasm to learn, teach and be a leader

If so, Burlington Lacrosse needs you!

We ask that all interested coaches fill out an application and submit to the BMLA for consideration. Coaching selections are typically made in October-December of the year prior to a season. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about coaching with us.


Rep Box & Field Coaches

All Rep & Field lacrosse coaches must be certified, completed their Making Headway course, Emergency Action Plan 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.

Don't have your coaching certification? No big deal, the BMLA covers the cost of certification for any registered coach completing the certification course.

OLA Coaching requirements can be found HERE.

Dates and locations of Coaching Clinics can be found HERE.

The BMLA recognizes the commitment and cost of being a coach. We cover travel costs of out-of-town games and far-away tournaments for non-parent coaches! 

House League Coaches

All head coaches and assistant coaches must have a Criminal Record Check (with 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 (with 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 for more details.
