Please read an important note about coaching

Parents who coach children's rec sports are awesome.  We think so, and we know the kids think so too.  We have decades of enthusiastic feedback from parents who were uncertain whether they could coach, or enjoy it, and who loved it and want to return every year.  Simply put, without parents offering to coach, leagues like LPAA wouldn't exist, and we would all be the worse for it.  So we do everything we can to encourage, train and celebrate the coaches who step up for this uniquely rewarding experience. 

That said, in today's society we are also mindful about creating safe experiences for kids and adults.  We have policies that try to make sure that kids are never alone with adults, and we encourage parents to remain with their kids at all times and never to consider LPAA sports as "drop-off" programs.  But even that is not enough, so like most other youth organizations, we now ask that prospective coaches complete a police criminal records check before coaching.

The good news is that we have made this as easy as possible.  The application is entirely online, directly through the Toronto Police Services website.  The cost is only $20 for a check that is good for two years, and is transferable among many other organizations.  Of course, if you have already been cleared, we accept this too.

We know it's an additional step to take when signing up to coach, but we hope it's smooth and painless and won't prevent you from offering to engage in such a rewarding experience.  If you have any comments or questions, we're happy to hear from you through our "Feedback" tab above.

Concussion Awareness Registration

Rowan's Law

Ontario is the first jurisdiction in Canada to pass concussion safety legislation, setting a precedent for sport legislation across the country. The Ontario government worked closely with key medical experts, athletes, coaches and sport leaders – most notably the members of the Rowan’s Law Advisory Committee – in establishing this first-of-its-kind legislation that makes concussion awareness mandatory for all participants involved in children's athletics.

All parents are required to acknowledge that they have reviewed concussion awareness resources at this link:

Any child that exhibits concussion signs or symptoms is required to stop play immediately and not to return to LPAA sports until medically cleared by a doctor.

LPAA will grant a pro-rata refund for all games unplayed because of a known or suspected concussion.
