5-) Legal Background Checks : An email was sent this week to all of our database coaches concerning the new request from Sports Québec – and consequently by Curling Québec – in matter of legal Background Checks of any competition coach accompanying youngsters. Every Competition coach must provide Curling Québec a background check report at least 10 days before an event. For the Jeux du Québec, the URLS has now the same obligation towards ‘accompagnateurs’. No obligation for background check for officials. Any background check report can be done by your local organism in charge of those reports (local police, RCMP, etc.). Or, the Sports Québec supplier, Sterling Back Check. For more details, contact us.
