    Safe Sport Literature

    As adults who interact with children on a daily basis, there may come a time when a child turns to you for support for abuse that is taking place in their life. Child abuse can take many forms and while it does not always lead to injuries that you can see, it can result in severe emotional harm that can have long-lasting effects. Please refer to a handout from the Office for Victims of Crime for information about what to do should this happen. The handout is titled ‘What Adults Need to Know about Child Abuse’ and you can access it here. As trusted adults, we can have a very positive impact and be a huge support for children who are suffering.

Coach Certification Info

  

New STSC Skills

This skills sheet can replace the STSC in-water skills session done with an ARC instructor and therefore can replace the ARC STSC certification itself if accompanied by the STSC Online Content Only certification. If the coach cannot find an ARC instructor to provide the full STSC course, an instructor from one of the agencies listed on the Skills Sheet can work with the coach and sign the form. The coach must complete the STSC Online Content Only course, print the certificate and present it at the time of the skills demonstration. This new procedure was approved by the Operational Risk Committee at convention and can be used starting immediately by coaches who need to renew STSC and do not have an acceptable lifeguard certification.

The coach and the instructor are required to sign the form and falsification of this document may constitute a Code of Conduct violation. It is not your responsibility to question the validity of the instructor's signature unless you have reason to do so. In that event, contact the agency that certified the instructor and try to confirm that the instructor's certification is valid and that the skills session did take place.

A copy of the STSC Online Content Only certification and this signed Skills Sheet should be sent to the LSC Registrar; together, they complete the STSC requirement. The STSC expiration date will always be the one on the STSC Online certification because this one will always expire first.
