2013 REGISTRATION INFORMATION
1). 2013 Team registration is $100. With that you will receive $25 worth of our $5000 draw fundraising tickets. You can sell them to get your $25 increase back or put your team name on the tickets for a chance to win the prize drawn at the annual recognition dinner in October 2013.
2). All minor team coaches (U18 and below) must submit a criminal record check along with their team registrations. That means ALL coaches on a team. (bench coach, base coach, practice coach). This is a requirement of our insurance carrier. If you have already completed this with another sport or it was required because you coached in a school district or for work, we will accept one done within the last 3 years. This is confidential information and will be treated as such under the privacy act. There are two ways to do this: contact municipal regional police in your area or local RCMP detachment depending on where you live. Tell them you are a volunteer, a sample letter is available if you need one. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information if required. Anyone who does NOT have this completed prior to the season WILL NOT be allowed to coach at any tournament that SNB is involved in (provincials, easterns or nationals).
