Volunteer Coaching Requirements

Coaches must fill out a Kid Safe form, a USYS Membership form, and MUST be fingerprinted. If you've been fingerprinted later than last 2 years, it must be done again.. 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.

 

We at HTRSA have provided you a printable pdf CHECKLIST of the volunteer coaching requirements! Take the plunge and join the TEAM!

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 www.bioapplicant.com/nj and make payment at that time via credit or debit card. The cost is $25.00 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 HTRSA eboard for reimbursement.

 

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