Qualifications (Pickering Minor Hockey Association)


The OMHA has minimum requirements for all House League and REP Team Officials. 


In addition to OMHA minimum requirements, all team staff including coaches, trainers, managers and on-ice helpers for House League and REP teams are required to have the following:

1. Mandatory - Valid Police Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC) / Criminal Offence Declaration

  • All team staff are required to have a completed VSC or COD before they can assume active positions with the team. VSC's are good for 3 years as long as a signed COD is provided to the PHA each year in between PRC's
  • Save money: In order to ensure faster service and to minimize costs for those applying for volunteer positions, citizens are now required to bring a letter from the organization they are volunteering for.This letter should state on the organization’s letterhead the individual’s name, position and general duties they will be performing. This will ensure you receive the volunteer rate of $20 instead of the $55 fee and it also satisfies the RCMP’s requirement to waive its $25 fee for fingerprint comparison, if required.
For the letter, please contactLeo Nat PHA General Manager - [email protected]
