On May 12, 1986, New Jersey became the first state in the nation to pass legislation, which protects volunteer athletic coaches, managers, and officials from lawsuits. Commonly referred to as the "Little League Law" (2A:62A-6 et. seq), this legislation extends partial civil immunity to volunteers who have attended a "safety orientation and training skills program."
