Coaches & Managers

One of the essential functions of coaches and team managers is to manage team communications with players and their families.  If you are a coach or team manager, SportsEngine has created a Team Management Guide for Coaches and Team Managers to help you use our website and mobile app to efficiently and effectively communicate and manage your teams. 

Criminal Record Checks

In order to protect the children who participate in Little Mountain Baseball's programs, Little League Canada and the Board of Little Mountain Baseball requires a Criminal Record Check for all LMB Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches, All-Star or Tournament Team Coaches and Managers, as well as all LMB Board Members at least once every two years.

Criminal Record Checks may be completed via the Ministry of Justice at no cost to you.  Please contact registrar@littlemountainbaseball.com for link and access code. If the online system does not work for you, there will be an option to print pages for manual submission. You will need to make arrangements for the Registrar or Safety Officer to check your ID which we will send to the Ministry of Justice via email. On a few occasions, you may need to go to the Vancouver Police Department for finger-printing. LMB will reimburse the cost of the CRC in these instances

Coaches/Assistant Coaches are also required to submit an online Coaching Application. 

All information will be held in strict confidence.

Respect in Sport

All coaches of teams from Mini-Minor A and higher will be required to complete the Respect-in-Sport course.  This is an online course that takes approximately two hours to complete.  LMB will reimburse you for the cost of taking the course.

If you have already completed the course you can share the result with LMB, no need to take it again.  We are currently in the process of setting this up; coaches will be notified when it's ready.
