Georgina Minor Hockey Association requires all persons in a position of trust to successfully complete a Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVCS)
This includes the Head Coach, Assistant Coaches, Managers, Trainers and Volunteers.
Each year after you have completed your PVSC, you will be asked to sign a Criminal Offense Declaration Form to ensure that your status has not changed.
The objective of a PVSC is to protect Hockey Canada, the OMHA, the GMHA and most importantly our children from the potential threat that a "person in authority" might present; if that individual has a criminal record that gives cause for concern.
Additional information is found by clicking here : York Region Vulnerable Sector Check
Here's the steps that you need to follow:
1. 1. Contact the GMHA Office Administrator by email: [email protected] requesting the authorization letter from the GMHA for volunteers.
2. 2. Take this letter to apply via in person or online application portal.
In Person Applications
PVSC applications being completed in person can be done at York Regional Police Headquarters.

Monday, Tuesday and Friday: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Wednesday, Thursday: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (phone support from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.)

PVSC being completed via an on-line application portal can be picked up at any of the York Region police facilities (when completing the on-line application, it will give you the list of facilities to select from).
