Paperwork for Coaches

California State Law and P.A.L. regulations require that coaches be officially cleared to coach. All prospective coaches must fill out the San Jose Police Activities League Adult Registration Form and be fingerprinted (Livescan).

Primary coaches must submit the registration form and complete the livescan report to the San Jose P.A.L. Office. Assistant coaches can submit their information (a copy of the completed livescan report, the Adult Registration Form, and a photo) to the Rosegarden PAL Soccer Commissioner, who will issue the assistant coach's card.

These forms can be found in the Forms Section. Submit these forms by June for the quickest results. Remember no forms, no coaching.
