Club season is right around the corner and it’s time for referees and club leaders to complete their PIA requirements. All referees, coaches, managers, trainers, club administrators/board members, registrars, team contacts, volunteers, or any Leader within a club must complete the mandatory requirements prior to working with a club or athletes. A PIA may not participate in volleyball activities until they have completed a Criminal Records Checks (CRC), Safe Sport Training (SST), and annual Screening Disclosure Form (SDF).

Completing these prerequisites is a small but critical step in creating a safe and welcoming sport environment. Volleyball Alberta recognizes a systemic culture shift is required to eliminate maltreatment in sport, and that everyone’s contribution and commitment is required to reach this goal.

Visit our Person in Authority Page for details on completing these three simple steps.
