Thank you for considering becoming a coach and/or an official for Junction City Athletics. Deciding to become a coach/official is a huge decision and one to not take lightly. However, when you do decide that coaching/officiating is right for you, it is very rewarding and a worthwhile cause.
All coaches must fill out an application, submit a criminal background check, complete a child abuse prevention training, and then complete the NFHS Concussions in Sports training, every year beginning in August. Depending on the sport there may be some adjunct training we would like our coaches to complete. All required criminal background checks and training must be completed prior to the start of practices or games.
Below are the three steps and links for you to complete the required application, background check, and training. The cost of any training and background check is paid for by JCA, at this time.
All officials are not required to take a criminal background check or to complete the NFHS Concussions in Sports training.
To sign up to be an official, please email your name, phone number, email address, and what sport(s) you would like to officiate to JCA, using the email link at the bottom of the page.
Click on the application and background check link below to fill out and submit the application and background (same form). After your background check has cleared, you will be sent a link to do a child abuse prevention training.
Complete the 1-hour NFHS Concussion in Sports online training (Free), after completing the training, email a copy of your completion certificate to email@example.com
After the background check clears and the NFHS Concussion in Sports certificate has been sent to JCA; someone from JCA will let you know you're approved to be a coach and/or official.
