Contact the COJ Parks and Recreation Department to schedule an appointment to apply for a badge. Badges will be picked up by the a FCAA representative and handed out. Once you receive your badge it must be worn at all times when interacting with players.
If you have a badge from 2021 you will need to fill out a Continuation Form and return to the Athletic Director at least 3 weeks before the season begins. Click the link below to download the Continuation Form.
If you don't have a badge you need to send your name and team name to the Head Coach, as soon as possible. The info will be turned into the League Director. Your request for a badge will only be considered if it comes from a League Director. Your name will be placed on a list with the COJ which will allow you to make an appointment to receive a badge.
