The Union Township Recreation Committee provides youth program volunteers with an opportunity to attend, free of charge, the Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. certification clinic. This clinic, created by the Rutgers Youth Sports Research Council, helps coaches, parents, and administrators conduct safe, healthy, and enjoyable recreation programs for young athletes. In accordance with the stipulations of New Jersey’s Little League Law, the 3-hour long Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. Clinic helps coaches minimize the risk of injury to young athletes, provides information about fundamental coaching concepts which enhances volunteer coaches’ effectiveness, and protects volunteer coaches from civil lawsuits. Certification is permanent and is applicable across all youth programs. All Recreation coaches are encouraged to attend this class.
