Coaching Requirements for Dumont Recreation: Coaches Certification & Background Check
It is the policy of the Dumont Recreation Commission that all coaches attend a certification course and if over the age of 18 have a background check done in order to coach. The coach's certification class is a one time requirement (for coaches 18+) and represents certification within the Borough of Dumont. The certification course is mandatory and does not preclude anyone who has coached at any other level, including high school, college or university or even a professional level.
You must be 18 years of age to coach or be an assistant coach in any sport or activity within the borough. Anyone under the age of 18 may help a coach but is not considered a head coach or an assistant coach and should not be given the responsibility of a coach. Anyone under the age of 18 who works helping a coach or in an other capacity for a coach must be certified regardless of their age. (To attend the Minors Under the Age of 18 Course)

Only after you have been fingerprinted will a Certification Course Card be issued to you. You can either by mail or bring a copy of your paid receipt from Sagem showing you were fingerprinted or when the results have been sent to the Recreation Office a card will be mailed to you.
