Anyone interested in becoming a coach or Volunteer, must complete the following: (THIS APPLIES TO ALL SPORTS)

This is a one time three-hour program that meets the "Minimum Standards for Volunteer Coaches Safety Orientation and Training Skills Programs" (N.J.A.C. 5:52) and provides partial civil immunity protection to volunteer coaches under the "Little League Law" (2A:62A-6 et. seq.)

2. Complete the Online Concussion Training Program

By taking this free, online course and using what you learn, you will be well positioned to improve the culture of concussion. Your actions can help create a safe environment for young athletes so that they can stay healthy, active, and thrive – both on and off the playing field.

3. Submit to the fingerprint background check

The Borough of Emerson requires all volunteers for any programs sponsored by the Borough and having contact with persons under the
age of 18 years must submit to a background check. This ordinance was UPDATED in 2018 and the fingerprint requirement applies to
everyone, regardless of your occupation and even if you were fingerprinted in 2018 for any other purpose. Everyone must be fingerprinted
in 2019. Once you have been fingerprinted in 2019 you will not have to be fingerprinted again. The Borough has retained a service that
will conduct annual checks if you wish to continue to volunteer coach.

A. Download the fingerprint form HERE

B. Once you print the form, fill out boxes 9-26. You MUST bring this form with you when you get fingerprinted.

C. Make an appointment to get fingerprinted HERE. Fill out the online form EXACTLY as you filled out the form you printed out. You must pay by credit card online in order to schedule your appointment. (YOU CAN NOT PAY AT THE SITE) Please keep your receipt and bring it to Liz Morris at Emerson Borough Hall, if you wish to be reimbursed. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding
