Rec Volunteer Coaches

Any Volunteer Coaches Over the Age of 17

PA State Laws have changed and starting July 1, 2015 all volunteers must now complete the following clearences before working with children. Please turn in all certificates to the club registrar.  If you have already completed any of these for another club, sport or school district, the clearences are portable and I will just need a copy of the certificate.
