How can I get the Volunteer Voucher for the Fall Registration?
The Club will provide ample opportunities throughout the season to allow every parent an opportunity to receive their volunteer credit. Volunteer positions include:
Team Photo Distribution
Equipment handout, collection, and organization
Tournaments and Events - various positions
Lost and Found Set Up
Gender Rep for Teams
Volunteer opportunities for special events will be sent out to club members when they are available. If you are in need of volunteer hours watch your email or please contact Shelley firstname.lastname@example.org
What is the Volunteer Bond?
The Volunteer Bond is a $100.00 refundable fee paid by every player at the time of Fall Registration.
How is Volunteer Bond Refunded?
When you volunteer for a minimum of 4 hours per family with our club , you will receive a volunteer credit voucher in April. This voucher is submitted during your Fall registration and provides a credit to the Bond i.e. you don’t have to pay the volunteer Bond for registration in the next year. Our club’s year is from September 1- March 31.
If you volunteer in Fall 2018/2019 season, your volunteer credit will apply to registration for the Fall 2019/2020 Season.
If I volunteer in the spring do I get a credit for the fall?
Only if you have previously paid the Bond fee in the current fall/winter season. If the spring time is your first registration with the club there is no volunteer fee collected in the Spring registration, so no credit can be given. You have to pay the bond first before it can be assigned as a credit.
Can I use a Volunteer Voucher from a previous season?
Credit Vouchers can only be used for the season in which it was intended. For example: you can not use a voucher given in 2017 for the Fall 2019 season.
Do I have to pay the Volunteer Bond for all my children?
The Bond is paid per each child.
If I leave the club do I get my Volunteer Bond back?
If you have completed your volunteer hours and you want to leave the club, you can apply to have your volunteer bond returned.
Volunteer bonds are returned by cheque and sent through the post. Please contact Carina Steer for your Bond refund.
Criminal Record Checks
Do all Volunteers need a Criminal Record Check?
All team staff must be registered and have a current Criminal Record Check. CRC's are mandatory for all Volunteers. If you are not registered or have a current CRC when volunteering with a team you may not receive your credit voucher for the following Fall season..
CRC Link For Volunteers
Coastal FC is now enrolled with the BC Government's Criminal Records Review Program (CRRP) Applicant Based Online Service also referred to as CRC. Your CRC is valid for 3 years, as per BC soccer rules. A CRC is mandatory for all volunteers for boys and girls teams from u5-u18.
The CRC program satisfies BC Soccer's Risk Management requirements.
You may now apply for a CRC online and no longer have to go to the RCMP unless fingerprints are necessary. This service is offered free to Coastal FC volunteers. The results of your CRC will be emailed to email@example.com
Follow the instructions on the link below using the Coastal FC direct link:

If a volunteer access code is required: Coastal FC Volunteer Access code : 46B79P5PJA
We hope that the CRC program will make it easier for Coastal FC volunteers to comply with BC Soccer's Risk Management requirements.
Please note: If you are asked to have fingerprinting done by the CRC program:
The fingerprints will be good for 10 years and can be transferred to other agencies, but you will need to go to RCMP of your city in which you reside. South Surrey residents must use the Surrey Dispatch. They will not be accepted at White Rock Police station.
If you cannot use the on-line CRC option, then you must obtain your CRC through the RCMP
Instructions - RCMP Criminal Record Check (only if you can not use the on-line CRC option)
The Surrey RCMP and White Rock RCMP have given us the following instructions for resident Volunteers. It should help to make this a smooth process. You must get your in person CRC done at the city you live in. If you live in Surrey you must get it done at a Surrey Station, you can not get it done in WhiteRock or Langley or anywhere else.
There are 3 RCMP forms that you will require. 2 forms can be obtain from the police station at any time, they are RCMP CRC 358 and RCMP CRC 392.
Complete all required sections on both forms and initial all 4 boxes under the Category of Information for Disclosure section on the bottom of the RCMP-GRC 3584 form.
The third form is the CoastalFC Volunteer Letter – CRC. This letter establishes that you are a Club volunteer. With this letter, the CRC will be free of charge. Without this letter you will have to pay for the CRC. Volunteer Letters can be obtain by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Have all the forms ready including the volunteer letter and at 2 pieces of ID when you go to the RCMP office. The identification you take must include photo ID and show your current address in Surrey (drivers licence is good because it has both a photo and your address). If you have no ID that shows your current, a BC Hydro, Telephone, or similar bill showing your name and address will suffice.
