Rec Coach Registration on Blue Sombrero.pdf)
- LEGAL NAME. Please enter your full, complete, and LEGAL name. No nicknames or abbreviations. This will ensure a smooth review without delays.
- DOB: CJSA (Connecticut Junior Soccer Association) and GHSC (Glastonbury Hartwell Soccer Club) require that all adult volunteers provide their date of birth as part of the volunteer registration.
If you or your kids have registered for Hartwell Soccer in prior season, it's likely you already have a Blue Sombrero account. Please DO NOT create a new Blue Sombrero Account. If you're not sure if you have an account or are having trouble accessing your account, contact the registrar for assistance to access your account. (email@example.com).
THIRD, BACKGROUND CHECK.
Mandatory On-Line Background Check: All volunteers 18 years of age or older must complete a mandatory on-line background check. The on-line background check takes 2 to 3 minutes to complete and the background clearance is good for 3 years. To complete the background check, first register as a coach on the Blue Sombrero site (in Step 2 above), then follow these Background Check Submission instructions.
NOTE: Social Security Number. The new background check process requires that the user enter in their social security number. This number is not stored in Stack Sports database, Blue Sombrero's database, or in Glastonbury Hartwell's database. The number is immediately encrypted and sent to the background check service provider.
PLEASE NOTE THAT NO ONE WILL BE ALLOWED TO HAVE A COACHING or MANAGER POSITION UNTIL ALL MANDATORY REQUIREMENTS ARE MET.
FOURTH, MANDATORY SAFESPORT TRAINING.
Lastly, all coaches will be required to have completed a 2022 SAFESPORT training certificate for either the initial course or the annual refresher training. You must have one of these certificates dated on or after July 1, 2022.
With a goal of safeguarding our players, CJSA is not unique in requiring all adults interfacing with youth to complete this mandatory training, you may have already been required to complete with other youth sports or town programs.
CONCUSSION TRAINING. Lastly, we want all coaches to take the CDC Concussion training. It only has to be taken once, but please save your training certificate.
Your actions can help create a safe environment for young athletes so that they can stay healthy, active, and thrive - both on and off the playing field.
Both CDC and SAFESPORT provide certificates of completion on successful which will be needed to be confirmed as a coach.
