Volunteer Coaches

Any Volunteer Coaches Over the Age of 17

Thank you for volunteering to coach your son's or daughter's Junior Classics Academy team. PA State Laws have changed and starting July 1, 2015 all volunteers must now complete the following clearences before working with children. Turn in all certificates to the club registrar before your first practice. 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.
