As more coaches are being trained, a new process was implemented in 2016 and those processes were put into a new Alberta Policy 031.
Darts Alberta Coaches must have successfully completed the NDFC Level 1 Coaching course (online) and a minimum of the NCCP Make Ethical Decisions module. Consideration may be given to someone that is already in the process of completing the on-line course or already registered for the MED course, depending on their other qualifications and experience and the qualifications of other candidates. But it is important to note that if there are a sufficient number of candidates, those without the necessary qualificiations may not be considered.
Every applicant must complete the Darts Alberta Volunteer Application and submit this to the Darts Alberta Administrator. The deadline is December 31st, 2023.
Each successful applicant must comply with the screening criteria as outlined in Darts Alberta Policy 022.
Each applicant must be available, preferably in person, for the interview process that will be held mid to late January. Further details will be provided if selected for an interview.
Note that when completing the application for coaches, the options are listed under “Appointed Positions”. If interested in both Youth and Adult Coach Positions, please click on your preferred choice in the drop down menu and make a note of your second choice in the Comments Section.
Should a coach have any questions regarding training, certification or the selection process, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Some of you may have been advised by your league that Darts Alberta now requires the following information for all members:
- Date of Birth
- Postal Code
Some members have questioned the need for the information. Because we receive funding from the Government of Alberta every year, extensive reports are required to be submitted from every sport that receives this funding…not just from Darts Alberta. In the past, we were only asked for this information by age group (under 18, 19 to 25, 26 to 54, and 55+) and estimates were given based on the population of our membership. This is no longer the case.
The Government of Alberta (our funder) is requesting that all Provincial Sport Organizations (PSOs) – collect the birthdates of their members as a requirement of their annual funding agreement. Membership statistics play a role in the amount of funding we receive from the government and if we are unable to provide complete information, those members will not be able to be counted. This could significantly affect future funding.
Protection of Personal Information—Although your league collects and submits your name, address, gender, date of birth and postal code to Darts Alberta, this information is only accessible to 2 people within the organization, the Darts Alberta Administrator who is the Darts Alberta’s Privacy Officer and the Darts Alberta Membership Director. Individuals’ names and addressed are not submitted to government. Similar a generic list of Gender, Date of Birth and Postal Code are submitted in our government reports.
We appreciate that this is an onerous task to ask of our leagues and we urge everyone to be as cooperative as possible.
To all of our member leagues, please submit whatever information you have by the deadline and we will all work together to gather this additional information.
Darts Alberta welcomes Cory Bowen as the new Darts Alberta President and Bill McGuire as the Darts Alberta Second Vice President, effective July 1, 2023. A special thanks goes out to Fred Seaward, now our Past President and to Keith Sheppard (former 2nd Vice) for their years of service on the Darts Alberta Board of Directors.
