As per RNS Volunteer Screening Policy - 5.19, as voted on at the RNS AGM by the membership:

Screening of personnel and volunteers is an important part of providing a safe environment within sport associations that provide programs and services for youth. Ringette Nova Scotia is responsible to do everything reasonable to provide a safe and secure environment for participants in its programs, activities and events. Ringette Nova Scotia is committed to fulfilling the duty of care it owes its members.
