Coach Responsibilities


Background Checks 

Please note that all coaches require a police background check.  Print off the attached letter, take it to the RCMP detachment, and request a background check.  There is no charge for this.
Alternatively, your can go to This service costs $25 for an online background check.  Checks can be done for many different sports associations.  Use CLA (Canadian Lacrosse Association), ALA (Alberta Lacrosse Association), and Wheatland.
Please ensure that your background check is submitted to your coaching coordinator by May 1.



 Proxy Forms

All coaches are required to submit a Proxy Form  to be used at the 2017 ALA AGM.  This is very important to ensure that rural lacrosse has a say in how our sport is governed in Alberta.  Download the form, and email it to the Association President.
