This is a unique opportunity to help shape and expand one or more after school swimming / tutoring programs in Los Angeles.  Since 2007, Trident Swim Foundation, a non-profit organization, has been supporting swimming in urban settings for underserved youth through its Swimmer Scholar program.  “Swimmer Scholars” are required to attend 1 ½ hours of study hall and 1 ½ hours of swim instruction / swim team practice per day.  We are not a parent-run club rather we have an enthusiastic executive board of directors made up of independent business people who are all experienced, national-level, masters or former college swimmers.  The Trident Swim Foundation is seeking a Head Coach to build the swim program long-term and provide young people with mentoring and guidance.  In addition to the head coach, a teacher mentor leads the study hall and overall academic component of the program.

REQUIREMENTS

Candidates must have an understanding of the latest training methods, techniques and stroke analysis and be of high ethical and moral character.  In addition, candidates must have first aid, CPR/AED and lifesaving certifications and be available M-F mornings and / or afternoons for up to 3-5 hours / day.

SKILLS

Must have the ability and desire to grow the program; must be capable of motivating swimmers, parents, school staff and volunteers; must possess good written and verbal communication skills.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS

A bachelor’s degree from an accredited 4-year university or college and a competitive swimming background.

MAIN DUTIES

The Head Coach will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the team as well as daily administrative duties typical of a swim team:  scheduling practices and competitions; allocating swimmers to different levels and preparing training schedules for different levels of swimmers. The Head Coach must be energetic, hard working, self-motivated and goal oriented.  We are looking to start the right person this summer to shadow the current coach before the start of the new school year in Aug / Sept ’18.
