The Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. Clinic
Sports Awareness For Educating Today’s Youth ™
Why do I need to take this clinic to coach?
You don't need to take this clinic to coach. However, volunteer coaches who successfully complete the clinic are protected from lawsuits under the "Little League Law."
How often do I need to take this clinic?
According to the "Little League Law" you only need to attend a "safety program" such as the Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. Clinic once in your life. If you take the Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. Clinic, your attendance is permanently recorded by the Rutgers Youth Sports Research Council (YSRC). Taking the clinic will protect you under the "Little League Law" for every sport you coach as a volunteer.
How long is the clinic?
The clinic is 3 hours long. According to the "Little League Law," you must attend all 3 hours to have successfully completed the course (there is not a test at the end). Please do not be late or you will be turned away (they are VERY strict about this)
What will we do in the clinic?
The purpose of the Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. clinic is to provide volunteer coaches with the minimum knowledge required to conduct safe practices and competitions for young adults. "Certification" is for attendance only, and does not reflect, nor imply, that coaches who have attended the clinic have attained specific levels of proficiency or competence.
When and where will the clinic be given?
The course is given in South Brunswick 3 to 4 times a year and usually before a sports season is about to begin (March, August and November). For basketball, the course will be given at the beginning of November on a weeknight (at about 7pm) at the Community Center (124 New Road, Monmouth Jct).
How much does the clinic cost?
It's free if you are a resident of South Brunswick or are coaching one of our teams
How do I register for the clinic?
