Volunteers

NSGSC is a non-profit organization and therefore relies heavily on the support of volunteers to continue to help the club and participants in our program to grow and reach their full potential. We are very thankful for all the volunteer support we have had in the past and would love to give anybody the opportunity to take part in the development of the club's future.

Our volunteer positions allow parents of players, previous players, and other community members to get involved and make a difference in these young girls lives. Our core values of the club focus on Inclusion, Empowerment, Fun, Development, and Teamwork with our mission to inspire a lifelong love of sport through delivering fun, inclusive and progressive soccer programs for girls and women across the North Shore. We have the vision to deliver excellence through empowering girls and women to be their best both on and off the field. If you would like to be a part of this amazing club and help to deliver our mission and reach our vision then we would love for you to apply below.

Important Information

If you have been accepted as a volunteer, below are important links and information you will need to review or complete before starting your postition.

 Criminal Record Check

The NSGSC is governed by BC Soccer which requires that all team officials including coaches, assistant coaches, and managers have a completed Criminal Record Check (CRC) on file with their Club. The NSGSC values the safety of its players and volunteers. To that end, we have adopted the CRC as part of our Risk Management protocol.

A new CRC is required to be submitted every 3 years/36 months.

ID Cards will NOT be issued to any coach or manager  after October 15, 2020 if the NGSSC does not have a copy of their CRC on file.

We recommend going in person to the RCMP if this is your first CRC.  If you live outside of North Vancouver, then you will need to go to your local detachment.

** Please allow sufficient time for the CRC to be completed by the RCMP.  Sometimes CRCs  can be completed immediately but it is not unusual for fingerprints to be required and that can take 2 months.  **

There are two ways for you to get your criminal record check:

Option 1: In Person

Go in-person to the RCMP at the address below with 2 forms below.  Bring 2 pieces of ID, one photo ID and one needs to have a North Vancouver home address.

Address: 147 E 14 St, North Vancouver, BC V7L 2N4

Phone: (604) 985-1311

Hours: 8am - 7pm daily

Record your case #

Follow up weekly as it may be completed and waiting for pick-up.

Once you receive your clear CRC, please scan the 3 pages or take photos. E-mail to our Administrator in confidence to  clubadministrator@nsgsc.com

Option 2: Online

NSGSC is now enrolled with the BC Government's Criminal Records Review Program (CRRP) Applicant Based Online Service also referred to as eCRC.

The eCRC program satisfies BC Soccer's Risk Management requirements however there is a back-log.

You may now apply for a CRC online and no longer have to go to the RCMP unless fingerprints are necessary. This service is offered free to NSGSC's volunteers. The results of your eCRC will be emailed to our Club Administrator.   The Club Administrator will let you know once the CRC was been received by the club and will provide you with a copy.
