Volunteer Coach Background Checks

Recreation Safety Initiative

Roxbury has a long tradition of providing excellent recreation programs and facilities for the residents of the Township. In an effort to further advance the success of all our Recreation programs, the Roxbury Township Recreation Department working with the Roxbury Recreational Advisory Committee has implemented a new safety initiative. The Township has engaged the assistance of the National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI) to provide a standardized approach to providing background screening for our coaches. The goal is to ensure the highest level of safety within the programs offered to our residents.

This screening is mandatory for those individuals who are responsible for coaching or training Township sponsored recreational activities. The cost for this background check will be free for Roxbury residents. Further information can be obtained through the Township Recreation Department at 973-448-2015.

Please review instructions for more information on completing the background check process.
