One of the NJ State laws that mandates requirements for coaches / teachers is the NJ residency requirement. You have to live in NJ to work for a gov't agency. This can be a difficult issue in communities like fencing where we are growing faster than we can produce coaches and referees. There is legally an exemption process which can be followed in cases of hardship to the employee or critical need for the employer. I can post a link later, or send you the form. Or search for NJ residency requirement exemption form.
