Mandatory Training for All Coaches

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.

Effective for our FALL 2019 season, all coaches will be required to have completed CDC Concussion and SAFESPORT training. With a goal of safeguarding our players, CJSA is not unique in requiring all adults interfacing with youth to complete this mandatory training, you may have already been required to complete with other youth sports or town programs. If you have already taken the training, you do not need to take again.

Both CDC and SAFESPORT provide certificates of completion on successful which will be needed to be confirmed as a coach.

The online SAFESPORTS sessions take 1.5 hours and the CDC session about 30-40 minutes. It is a good idea to get a jump start on these trainings and certifications before the Fall season approaches.

SafeSport Training - REQUIRED:

The U.S. Center for SafeSport is an independent nonprofit committed to ending all forms of abuse in sport. This includes bullying, harassment, hazing, physical abuse, emotional abuse, and sexual misconduct and abuse. Our coaches are mandatory reporters and the online SAFESPORT training will help identify the abusive behaviors that must be reported to protect our players. There is no cost for this training when you follow these instructions.
