Requirements for All Volunteer Coaches

Thank you for deciding to volunteer for Emerson Recreation Youth Sports. It is the people like you that allow our programs to be successful and serve the athletic needs of our youth.
To allow you to be a volunteer coach, New Jersey State Law and Borough Ordinances require that you complete a series of training courses and background checks.
Below you will find information on each requirement. Should you have any questions, please reach out to Stacy at
Once all mandatory training courses and background checks are complete, upload your certificates here.
