About The Electronic Police Information Check (ePIC)
CMSA requires all team officials (coach, assistant coach, team manager) listed on CMSA rosters for league play, provincial competitions, tournaments, training, cultural exchange travel and national championships to have a current and valid police clearance to ensure the safest possible environment for youth soccer players. Police clearances are valid for three (3) years.
Team officials must be registered with a CMSA Member-Club and assigned to a current team roster to apply for a security clearance and receive a volunteer voucher from CMSA. Once your club has placed you on a roster, please complete the following steps to apply for a police clearance and become an eligible coach:
STEP 1: Request a volunteer voucher
Volunteers listed on a team roster must request a volunteer voucher from CMSA before applying online
To receive your voucher, email email@example.com
STEP 2: Apply online
After receiving your voucher, begin your application by clicking the link sent via email from Police Solutions and select 'Register for your Police Information Check.'
Note: you must apply online within two weeks of receiving your voucher.
STEP 3: Share your results
Once you have received notification from CPS that your application has been processed and completed, you must ‘SHARE’ this information with CMSA. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with a PDF copy of your results.
If sharing through CPS Police Information Checks – Online Results – Secure Access please include PIN Number, Postal Code, and Date of Birth.
You are not eligible to coach until you have shared the results online with CMSA.
- Volunteers who live outside the City of Calgary must still request a volunteer letter from CMSA. Once a letter has been received, it must be brought to your district RCMP office for processing.
