VOLUNTEER COMMUNITY AND PARENT COACHES:

Selkirk Storm Athletics relies on community volunteers and parents to take on coaching roles.  All coaches are required to have a Criminal Record Check valid within the previous 5 years from the Kimberley RCMP.  In addition, all coaches are required to complete an  ANNUAL Child Abuse Reporting Protocol (CARP) session with a school administrator.  These CARP sessions are scheduled at the start of each school year at Selkirk and McKim.  Please call the school for CARP session dates.  Coaches are also required to complete a CATT concussion training certificate online.

PLAYING UP

BC School Sport mandates that student-athletes can now play-up to a more senior team during league play without restriction on the number of days. A student-athlete who is otherwise eligible and is registered is eligible to join the more senior team in that sport after the completion of the lower age level team’s restricted competition and play-off schedule. In certain situations, it may be beneficial for athletes to play a level above what they are registered. This is not a common occurrence, but may take place in specific situations where it benefits both the team and athlete. Coaches are not to ‘recruit’ junior age players. They are to speak directly with athletic director(s) and junior coach prior to expressing any interest to the junior age player. Refer to the Playing Up document above.  In these situations, the athlete, the family, coaches, and athletic directors are consulted. A final decision will be made by Selkirk’s Athletic Committee.


JUNIOR PROVINCIALS

Junior Provincials are not sanctioned by BC School Sports. Therefore, junior teams wanting to compete at a junior provincial tournament must submit a written request to Selkirk’s Athletic Directors. The request will state their reasons to participate, players and chaperones committed to going, and a breakdown of costs. The request should be done as early in the season as possible so parents/guardians can be made aware of potential costs No school funding is available. This tournament must not interfere with local zone championships. A final decision will be made by Selkirk’s Athletic Committee.
