PGAJL Captains/Coaches Take Note -
This is an important week as 2021 Player Registration opens next Monday February 1. Player registration promotions will be pushed out BUT, before your club/team's registration can go live, captains will need to make sure their Abuse Training is complete and their Background Check must have passed. The training involves a 90 minute video followed by a quiz that must be taken afterward.
Abuse Training for captains and coaches is required to be compliant with the Safe Sport Authorization Act in 2017.
