Volunteers needed Volunteers are needed at all levels. The club is offering enhanced training programs this year, for both coaching competency and for social awareness (recognizing concussion symptoms and recognizing sexual abuse situations). A background check is mandatory and CJSA offers a simple method to process a background check that maintains your privacy. Club registration fees cover the costs for all volunteer background checks.
