Thank you for your interest in joining the St. John’s Sports Association. Our program would not exist without our coaches and program volunteers. Please learn more below and reach out to us if you have questions or can help in any way.
Coaches are crucial to our ability to provide a great experience for all our kids. Extensive experience is not required but there are several requirements coaches must complete in order to ensure a safe and positive environment.
All first-time coaches/volunteers must complete a Volunteer Application, which includes authorization to run a background check.
All first-time coaches/volunteers must review the Archdiocese Conduct Policies and sign/return the last page.
This one-night course is required every four years. Volunteers will be required to show the certificates before each season. To view and register for an upcoming session:

All coaches must read, sign and return the CYO Coaches Covenant.
Though not required, it is recommended for coaches to complete the one-night Rutgers SAFETY Clinic. You can view the schedule and register on the Rutgers SAFETY Clinic website ↗
