LTP Information


SONJ divides the state into 13 geographic sections, known as Areas. Some Areas represent one county, while others represent two or more counties. Each Area is managed by the SONJ state office with the help of one or more local volunteers, known as Area Directors. To learn more about your Area, click here.


Please check all that apply.





LTP Coordinator Information
A LTP Coordinator is the main volunteer who receives information from the SONJ state office and/or Area Director(s) and distributes that information to the LTP's coaches, athletes, and families. 

If you are the head coach who receives all the paperwork and registers your team for competition every year, YOU are also serving as the LTP Coordinator. You will therefore be completing this form.

Responsibilities of the LTP Coordinator include, but are not limited to:
  • Receive and distribute all information to the appropriate coaches, athletes, families, Unified partners, and volunteers. 
  • Inform SONJ state office of any changes to LTP Coordinator or coach contact information.
  • Ensure ALL athletes in the LTP have valid paperwork on file PRIOR TO THE START OF PRACTICE. 
    • Athletes ages 6+ must have a valid Participation Packet (medical) on file, which is valid for three years from the date of exam. 
    • Participants ages 2 - 7 are known as young athletes and must complete an Individual Registration form if participating in gross motor play activities only and NOT sport specific training.
    • For the most up to date information on validating, renewing, and accepting Participation Packets, click here.
