CCP Instructors are reminded to log into the Coaches Locker annually to update your profile with CAC. Many of you are missing email address, addresses are wrong, etc… CAC sends out valuable information regarding coaching, pd, etc… and CAC can’t reach you if your emails are out of date/missing.
This past year we have seen a lot of activity in Ontario and Canada with respect to our responsibility as coaches. Specifically in Ontario, Rowan’s Law has come into effect. Rowan’s Law concerns our responsibility as coaches with respect to responding to athletes who may have suffered concussions. As well, the Safe Sport movement is a call to action for organizations to implement change that will protect athletes from unethical behavior from coaches. As a PSO it is our responsibility to make every effort to support this movement.
As a result, you will all be required to complete the following process before you can be contracted by the Ontario Curling Council/CurlON/NOCA in any role. Some of you will have seen and completed this process already as part of a camp. THIS DOES NOT HAVE TO BE REPEATED. An annual confirmation will be required going forward ONCE YOU HAVE FULLY COMPLETED THE PROCESS.
