18.04 The BCLA Executive strongly recommends that all associations with athletes 18 years of age or younger, institute a policy that states no adult should be alone with a child and there should always be at least two adults present at all times around a child.
18.05 It is the responsibility of the minor box associations, youth field associations, senior box teams, men’s field teams and women’s’ field teams to ensure that the appropriate adults have a current criminal record check on file. The CCR’s are to be returned to a designated volunteer screening officer of the local association/team, who will confirm that the appropriate adults (per 18.01) have a current CCR. If there is a problem the CCR can be forwarded to the BCLA Volunteer Screening Officer for a resolution. The CCR box on the coaching form 100
