The Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) has partnered with SterlingBackcheck (SBC) to provide an online criminal record check process at a system-low price of $25, plus applicable taxes, per check, with a turnaround time of just 1 business day!

SBC’s Enhanced Police Information Check (E-PIC) is obtained from Canadian police services, combining a search of the National Repository of Criminal Records in Canada and a search of local police information within multiple databanks. This process provides a secure database to store and share results, manage renewals, and track the progress of individual checks. Results can be simultaneously returned to the coach’s personal account and to the appropriate person at the requesting sport organization, as per your preferences.

Getting started: to create account and proceed to request an E-PIC click here.

For more information on this service, please consult our FAQ, email us at procoach@coach.ca or call 613-235-5000 ext. 2387.

Coaching Tips

 Never Give Up: Athlete Development for Life
Perseverance Serves Young Athlete Development of Sports

When it comes to athlete development, we need to be teaching our kids more than just strategy and technique. Indeed, it is imperative that we expose them to situations that can instill real life lessons. One of the most important character traits they can develop through sports is perseverance, but it can only happen if we are not too quick to protect and shelter our athletes but instead follow a long-term athletic development approach.

Strain Inoculation 11:

Nurturing Champions in Fixed and Growth Mindset People
December 2015
Doug. Swanson – F.I.R.S.T. Place for Human Performance
A Brief review of Fixed and Growth Mindset
I shared the following twelve comparisons between fixed mindset (italics) and growth mindset (bold) orientations with our athletes. The review is offered to provide context for the two very different approaches assumed by individuals explored in Dweck’s research.  I asked the athletes to self-appraise and determine which mindset best reflected their current activities. You may wish to peruse the orientations and return to them as you read the suggestions on nurturing champions.
