Criminal Record Check


Thank you for your continued interest in working with the Vancouver Metro Soccer League (VMSL). In alignment with BC Soccer’s Criminal Record Check Policy, for which VMSL is affiliated, we kindly request that you complete and provide the VMSL with a copy of your Criminal Record Check (CRC) and Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC). 

Vancouver Metro Soccer League (VMSL) is an affiliated member of BC Soccer, the governing body for soccer in British Columbia. BC Soccer’s Criminal Record Check Policy states:

YOUTH

b)  Occasional Volunteers are not required to complete a Criminal Record Check/Vulnerable Sector Check so long as they do not have unsupervised access to a youth or otherwise vulnerable person. An adult who has completed a valid CRC/VSC must be present.

ADULT
a)  All BC Soccer directors and employee of BC Soccer or an affiliated BC Soccer organization aged 19 years and older must have a valid Criminal Record Check on file.

To make this process easy, Vancouver Metro Soccer League is enrolled with the Criminal Records Review Program (CRRP) Applicant Based Online Service.

The access code provided below is unique to our organization. This code will be required when submitting an online Criminal Record Check request.

Once the Criminal Records Review Program has completed its necessary checks, the results will be sent to the Vancouver Metro Soccer League (VMSL) and yourself.

The online service is offered to volunteers free of charge. For all other individuals, there is a $28 processing fee which may be paid by credit card within the online service when submitting a request for a criminal record check.

Please be advised that per BC Soccer’s Criminal Record Check Policy, you will not be able to continue your participation in your position/role until your CRC and/or VSC has been submitted and reviewed.
