Criminal Record Review Program

All registered coaches must submit a Criminal Record Check through the Criminal Records Review Program (CRRP). Criminal Record Checks are valid for five years. You will need a Swim BC access code which will be circulated annually, you can reach out directly to Sam Thoms if you haven’t received it. Instructions are included with the Access Code, but please be sure to read each step carefully when going through the system. Returning coaches can check the expiry date for their Criminal Record Check through the RTR system. If your Criminal Record Check is expiring this season, please request a new one.

This process can take two weeks or more depending on the volume of requests. Please ensure that you take processing time into account before you start your coaching position. If you have done a Criminal Record Check through CRRP in the last five years, you can share that Criminal Record Check with Swim BC by clicking “Share Results of a Completed Criminal Record Check.”

The CRRP recommends that Internet Explorer is used when requesting your Criminal Record Check.
