Lacrosse coaches invited to join VTL for 2018 season

Valley Thunder Lacrosse welcomes new and experienced coaches to join its program. The season runs April 16 to the end of June, with formal coach certification offered through Lacrosse Nova Scotia. You will also need to complete an RCMP Criminal Records Check (request letter and form are below).

Thank you!


Volunteer information

All coaches, volunteers and anyone else who has direct contact with  children involved with Valley Thunder Lacrosse are required to have a current Criminal Record Check and Vulnerable Sector Check.


The three-year validation of the Criminial Record Check begins April 1 of the current season and lasts to March 31 three seasons later, regardless of when you choose to submit it. Lacrosse Nova Scotia requires the original of this document (keep a copy for your own records) by June 1; this form must be submitted to the Valley Thunder Lacrosse Association president within three weeks of the start of the season. Your information will be held in confidence until submitted to Lacrosse Nova Scotia.


Volunteers should print these two documents and follow the instructions to have their screening completed. Please allow at least two weeks for RCMP to action your request.


Any cost incurred with a request for screening will be the responsibility of the applicant.
