  • Proof of age ie: BC Services Card (Care Card), Birth Certificate or Passport

Once fees are paid/discussed at the time of registration and all deposit/bond cheques are received, your player will then be able to receive his/her equipment and take part in the on field activities, but not before. Equipment, jersey and volunteer deposit cheques are held by the club until the end of the season. As long as the volunteer requirements are met and all gear is returned in good clean condition, these bond cheques will be returned to the family or are shredded. Please note - the GVMFA does not want to cash these cheques as we would rather have the volunteer time and have our gear back!
