Certification Requirements (Markham Waxers)

PrintCertification Requirements

How do I check my current certifications?

You can view the status of your current certifications via a Hockey Canada eHockey account. Please note that the Waxers require an updated Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC) every two seasons. HCR lists PVSC as valid for three seasons.

Visit the OMHA website for instructions on creating an eHockey account.

Once you create an eHockey account you can access your HCR profile, view your hockey history, check the status of your certifications, and sign up for clinics.  


Understanding Discrimination based on Gender Identity and Gender Expression

The Ontario Hockey Federation, Hockey Eastern Ontario, and Hockey Northwestern Ontario are ready to roll out the Understanding Discrimination based on Gender Identity and Gender Expression and a Guide to the Dressing Room Policy and Confidentiality Statement modules that form the Gender Identity and Expression Course for all team officials, which is a mandatory requirement to be approved to a roster for the 2017-18 season.

All team officials and volunteers will require an eHockey account in the Hockey Canada Registry (HCR) in order to register for and complete the two Modules. Once completed, notification will be posted to the team officials’ member profile on the HCR.

The first step in completing the training is to ensure all team officials have an eHockey account, in order to sign up for the required clinic. Those who do not already have an eHockey account should sign up.

Once your account has been established, or for those who already have an account, please click on the link below to be directed to the OHF landing page for more information on the training and to course registration (no costs). The landing page provides access to the course registration via the link. You then register for the Gender Identity and Expression Course. After registering for the clinic, team officials will receive an email with instructions for completing the modules.

Questions related to the content of the modules can be directed to the OHF, [email protected].

Certification Obtained Outside the OMHA

If you have obtained a coach or trainer certification with an association outside of the OMHA, please complete  Application for Conversion/Upgrade of Certification form and forward it to the OMHA so that your certifications can be added to your Hockey Canada Registration (HCR) system record.

Police Vulnerable Sector Check

MMHA requires a clear Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC) be filed when someone volunteers for the first time and every other season thereafter. No PVSC submitted may be dated more than two months prior to submitting to the MMHA.

In order to expedite the process of obtaining a PVSC, the applicant should complete the Waxers Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC) Volunteer Letter Request Form which confirms that the applicant is a volunteer with the association. The letter will allow the YRP to charge the volunteer processing rate and waive the extra fee should you need to be fingerprinted because your date of birth matches someone in the RCMP database.

You may apply for a PVSC online via the YRP website. Please note that the Stouffville station has been closed. You can apply either online or in person at the YRP Community Resource Centre at 10720 Yonge Street in Richmond Hill. 

The original Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC) letters must be submitted—photocopies will not be accepted—and you cannot be reimbursed without the original. You must submit the original PVSC to the Waxers office before you can be rostered.
