All coaches or individuals interested in coaching should familiarize themselves with the requirements to ensure that they are compliant. NCCP, CLA and ALA have also implemented ongoing professional development and requirements to maintain certification, and all coaches should become familiar and comply with those requirements as well.
All coaches, including assistant coaches, must be properly certified by the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) in order to coach lacrosse. They must also have a completed Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC) acquired in the last 3 years and provided to the ORLA for verification.
If you wish to apply to coach with the ORLA, please complete the application form or fill out an email including all of the same information requested, and email it to:firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com
If you have not provided the ORLA with a VSC certification in the last 3 years, please send a copy of the VSC to the same email. Note that for privacy reasons, ORLA does not keep VSC’s on hand once verified, so please maintain a copy of your VSC for any other purposes. If you are not certain if you have an up to date VSC with ORLA, please email and we will confirm.
Coaching certification for ORLA is managed in conjunction with the CDLA. Scheduling, registration and related procedures to obtain your proper NCCP certification are found here. [link] Coaches are responsible at all times to ensure they have the proper certification and failure to obtain the proper certification can result not only in suspension of the coach by the CDLA or ALA, but also result in forfeiting of games or team suspensions.
