Rutgers Youth Sports Research Council

Rutgers Youth Sports Research Council

The Rutgers Youth Sports Research Council, a partner with the NJRPA, develops, synthesizes, and disseminates scientific research about the influence of physical activity and organized sports on the healthy development of children and adolescents. Their award-winning educational programs are designed for recreation directors, coaches, parents, and administrators of youth sports leagues.

The Sports Council is proud to announce the development of our 5th Edition of our SAFETY Course. We have worked with professionals distinguished in their fields to upgrade and redesign the course based upon the most current research dealing with youth sports. We plan to launch the new edition in January of 2018. Please Visit our Website to get the latest news and updated schedule on future Clinics.

Rutgers Youth Sports Research Council Clinician’s Workshop
The Youth Sports Research Council hosts Clinician's Workshops which trains instructors who teach our SAFETY Courses for volunteer youth sport coaches.  These SAFETY Courses provide information for effectively coaching young athletes AND significant civil immunity (protection from law suits) for those volunteer youth sport coaches who complete the 3 hour SAFETY training.
