MJYFC Online Registration (link to our registration site)
All coaches within our organization must be current with a complete Background Check and CDC Concussion Training.
1) We have partnered with Sports Illustrated Play for the screening process and this is done through our online registration program. To complete the background check just log back into your family account via the above link and add the adult that will be coaching. Click the "apply to coach volunteer" button and once you complete the check out process, the option to click on "begin background check" will be available. There is a $22.00 fee for this process. We will get notice that you have completed the process and we will contact you if there are any questions. The background check is valid for 1 (one) full calendar year.
2) The State of TN has adopted a concussion policy and coaches at all levels are required to complete certification. This training must be completed each year and is free for everyone. All parents and players will also be required to read & sign a form stating they understand the signs & effects of concussions. MJYFC is following the CDC training program and you can complete certification online at https://headsup.cdc.gov/. Once you have completed the training you will receive a certificate of completion. Please turn a copy of the form into the field office.
