Coaching Requirements

Volunteer Coaching Requirements

Coaches must fill out a Kid Safe form, a NJYS Coaching Membership form and NJYS KidSafe form . It's very easy and all forms are on our site. Check out out Coaches Menu.

Fingerprinted and Background Checked (every 3 years) - For the background check and fingerprinting, the form to complete can be found HERE. Under Block #7 on the form you should type "LO5001". The closest place to have them taken is SAFRAN Morpho Trak in Ewing in the Parkway Corp Center 1230 Parkway Avenue Suite 102 Ewing, N.J. 08628. Their hours are 9:00-4:55 Monday - Friday and 2nd & 4th Saturdays 9:00-11:55 am. You have to make an appointment prior to going to SAFRAN at and make payment at that time via credit or debit card. The cost is $26.50 and the town will then reimburse the club and the club will in turn reimburse you. After fingerprinting is completed you will be given a receipt with a PCN# on it. Keep a copy of the receipt for your files and return a copy of receipt to the HGSC eboard for reimbursement. If you have NOT been fingerprinted for a Hamilton Township sponsored sport, you MUST be fingerprinted before coaching. If you have any questions contact the Hamilton Township Recreation Department @ 890-4028.

Concussion Awareness Training (every two years) - Must complete an online 30 minute online
training course concerning Concussion Awareness Training. The course is free and will provide you a
certificate that you have taken the course at the completion of the course. The Center for Disease
Control (CDC) Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports is a free, online course available to all to help keep
athletes safe from concussion. Once you complete the training and quiz, you print out a certificate. The
link is and is available on the HTRSA
and HSC websites. If you have already taken the course the year before just produce the certificate to
prove that you have taken the course. This is a state law for ALL youth sports. 

 Take the plunge and join the COACHING TEAM! Please sign up to get fingerprinted ASAP as those spots do fill up.

Remember...avoid the 3 L's  (Laps, Lines, and Lectures) and stress the 2 Fs (FUN and FUNDAMENTALS)!
