Background Checks

In 2007 the Chatham Borough Council and Township Committee passed Ordinance 07-31 establishing that all Volunteer coaches in Chatham are required to have a Background check in order to coach.  Fingerprints are now done digitally.

The process to do this is:
  • Contact Carol Nauta at to get the necessary forms.
  • Contact MorphoTrak to set an appointment  to go and get your digital fingerprints.
  • Please send the form that was taken at the time of the background check ASAP to Chatham Recreation at 54 Fairmount Ave.  
There are weekday and Saturday hours. There are a variety of sites in New Jersey. Please schedule an appointment at a location that is close to perhaps your work etc. The closest location to Chatham is Parsippany. Once you arrive at your appointment time, the process is in and out. Chatham Recreation then receives the result usually in about one week.

PAYMENT: The fee is $26.25 . You must pay (via credit credit card or debit card) at your scheduled appointment.  The Cougar Lacrosse CLub will reimburse you for this fee.  Please send the payment receipt to Matt Gilfillan at PO Box 92, Chatham NJ 07928.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation of this request. Remember, this is required in order to be approved as a volunteer coach. Don't wait to schedule your appointment!!!
