Volunteer coaches are a crucial ingredient to the success of our Norwood Raiders Football and Cheer Program. We are very appreciative of the many volunteer coaches who return year after year and devote time to help run our programs. In order to provide the best possible environment for our children please be aware of the following coaching requirements:
1. Coaching Application:
Volunteer coaches must complete the below Coaching Application and submit to the Board to maintain on file.
2. Rutgers Safety Course:
Volunteer coaches must complete the Rutgers Safety program as required by the State of New Jersey. For further information about this class, please go to the Rutgers Safety site http://youthsports.rutgers.edu/program-areas/volunteer-coaches. Click in the right column under "S.A.F.E.T.Y." for the Clinic Schedule and locations of upcoming coaches' clinics in your area.
3. Concussion Awareness Certification:
This is a newly instituted requirement. Volunteer coaches must take a 30 minute on-line concussion Awareness course. Upon completion of the course you will receive a certification. This is a one-time certification. Once completed, print out the Certificate of completion and submit to Board to maintain on file. Keep copy for your records.
