Chatham Recreation Background Check

All Parent Coaches (this includes Travel Soccer Parent Managers, Travel Soccer Assistant Parent Managers, Recreation Soccer Parent Coaches and TOPSoccer Parent Coaches) must undergo Background Checks consistent with Chatham Recreation's policy.  Click here for more informationThere are no exceptions to this rule and no one will be allowed to coach without undergoing the fingerprint background check and obtaining the approval of Chatham Recreation.

If you have never been through a fingerprint background check you must follow the instructions for an "Initial Background Check."  If you have undergone an Initial Background Check and are up for renewal you must follow the instructions for a "Supplemental Background Check."

Please note this is a different background check than the one required when you register online with NJYS. Chatham Recreation does not accept the NJYS background check as this is not done using a fingerprint.
