As part of a national initiative by Squash Canada (SC) and Squash NS to implement safe sport practices, Squash Nova Scotia recently adopted a Screening Policy modelled on the SC Screening policy for all people associated with the sport in an official capacity and are beginning its implementation. This screening policy http://nssquash.ca/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/2020-10-28-Screening-Policy.pdf applies to board members, employees, travelling team staff, volunteers, coaches, officials and players. In addition, there are a number of other policies that were approved to support a safe sport environment. They are available https://nssquash.ca/about/policies-and-regulations/
Initial Screening priorities will be for Coaches and Board members and the CG Team manager, followed by officials and volunteers.
Affected members will receive an invitation to begin the screening process in the coming weeks.
