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.

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
