Vulnerable Sector Check
Leduc Soccer emphasizes member safety. To volunteer or coach, an annual Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC) is required. If you have an existing VSC it can be used if it is less than than 6 months old, else you will need to obtain a new VSC. To obtain a VSC you will need to print and bring this VSC Letter, necessary to get the police to waiver the VSC fees, and provide two government-issued IDs like a driver's license, passport, or birth certificate to the police.
EMSA ID Cards
For players who are new to the EMSA U13 to U19 teams and all new coaches and managers (U9 and up), it is mandatory to have an EMSA ID card. To obtain your EMSA ID card, please follow the instructions outlined below.
1. Capture a close-up photo or selfie of the player or team official. Ensure that there are no hats, sunglasses, or hands covering their faces. Also, the shoulders must be covered. The photo should be attached in JPEG or PDF format. Please note that photos in special files, or those that are too small, narrow, or stretched out will not be accepted.
2. Take a photo or scan a copy of one piece of government-issued identification for the person. This can be their Alberta Health Care Card, Birth Certificate, Passport, or Driver's License.
3. Send an email to email@example.com
, with the subject stating the full name of the person who requires an e-card. For example, "Request EMSA e-card for (FIRST NAME and LAST NAME)." Attach the photo/selfie (point 1) and the government-issued ID (point 2) to the email.
