The Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. Clinic – Sports Awareness for Educating TodaysYouth

Introduction – On May 12, 1986, New Jersey became the first state in the nation to pass legislation which protects volunteer athletic coaches, managers, and officials from lawsuits. Commonly referred to as the “Little League Law” (2A:62A-6 et. seq.), this legislation extends partial civil immunity to volunteers who have attended a “safety orientation and training skills program.”
Since 1986, the Youth Sports Research Council, in cooperation with the New Jersey Recreation and Park Association (NJRPA) has trained more than 200,000 volunteer coaches in New Jersey.
Objectives – In accordance with the stipulations in the Little League Law, the Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. Clinic:

Helps coaches minimize the risk of injury to young athletes.
Provides information about fundamental coaching concepts which enhances volunteer coaches effectiveness.
Protects volunteer coaches from civil lawsuits

Topics – The curriculum for the Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. Clinic is based upon the Minimum Standards for Volunteer Coaches Safety Orientation and Training Skills Programs (N.J.A.C. 5:52).

The topics include:

  • Legal Aspects of Coaching
  • Psychological Aspects of Coaching
  • General Coaching Concepts
  • Training and Conditioning Athletes
  • Medical/First Aid Aspects of Coaching

What Summer Options are there for a CU Player?
by posted 05/24/2019

We are often asked what options there are for Chatham United players over the summer. We believe our players are best served by having a different soccer experience over the summer. Some club programs run nearly all year with the same group of players and the same trainer. We believe the summer is the perfect time to change up your child’s soccer experience. Camps and clinics that focus on individual skills are a great way to go. Your child will train with players of different ages and skill levels. They will also experience different trainers and coaches who will develop and challenge them in new ways. Attending a summer camp allows you to develop as a player faster – it will challenge you with new drills, against players you must adapt to. To become a better player your child needs more diversity in their soccer experiences. This diversity in experience allows your child to adapt to the various playing styles they will encounter. The more diversity you see in training the better you will be at playing with and against other players and teams.

There are many great local camps run by our training partners. Local day camps include the camps run by the Chatham High School coaches (Boys July 15-19 and Girls July 8-12) and the camp run by Drew University’s long-time head coach Lenny Armuth (Boys July 8-12). Our training partners at the New York Red Bulls, United Soccer Academy and Maestro Soccer provide many options every week throughout the summer to meet your needs. For advanced players the New York Red Bulls RDS programs provide a great experience to train with high level players and coaches. Many of our players participate in those programs including week-long residential programs over the summer. These residential programs are a fantastic opportunity to meet new friends with the same shared passion.

We maintain a page on our website with these options as well.
