Protective Eyewear

It is now mandatory in New Jersey for all school aged youth that wear corrective eyewear while participating in recreation programs and activities to wear “protective eyewear” that meets American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards for frames and American National Standards Institute (ASNI) standards for lenses.


Participants in the Piscataway Recreation sponsored events do so at their own risk and accept full responsibility for all their actions and injuries incurred by their participation.  Prior to submitting a claim to the Township, injured parties must first use their own medical/accident insurance as their primary coverage.  The insurance offered by Piscataway Township is supplemental and secondary only.  If a claim qualifies for consideration, the Township insurance is limited to a maximum payout of no more than $5,000.00 per accident.

Accident Reporting

Coach must report the accident to the Recreation Office immediately.

The Recreation office will provide parent/guardian with an accident report that must be completed within twenty-four (24) hours after the accident and returned in person to the Recreation office.  All claims must be submitted with original bills that are not covered by private insurance.
