Every rostered Team Official (Coaches, Managers, HCSP, On-ice Helpers) Board Members, Appointed Positions and Staff of the AMHA over the age of majority eighteen (18) must have a current Criminal Record Check on file with the AMHA. Criminal Record Checks are valid for three (3) years.
A vulnerable sector search is an additional, secondary search of the criminal record databases that encompasses convictions for pardoned sex offences that have subsequently been pardoned. Pardoned offences are not typically included in a criminal record check. Vulnerable sector searches are only available to individuals who are identified as working with an organization responsible for the well-being of children under the age of eighteen (18) and the AMHA is such a organization.

For those individuals who require fingerprinting there are two processes.
1) For those that reside within Abbotsford, go to the Abbotsford Policy Department. You will require a letter from our Registrar and the fee is $27. The fee is refundable by the AMHA. Please note the RCMP will not fingerprint residents of Abbotsford.
2) For those that reside in an area that is policed by the RCMP, go to your local RCMP detachment or local authority.
The AMHA does accept Criminal Record Checks via the online system, however they must be current within one year. Please utilize the online system to share with the AMHA.
