We seek one individual for a single, full-time contract position that combines two existing part-time roles: Senior Staff Coach and Operations Manager.
As a Senior Staff Coach, you will lead training sessions for our U7-U10 Academy Program and for teams in our U11-U19 Select (D1/D2) Program. The Senior Staff Coach will likely serve as Head Coach for one of our older Select teams. Sessions will generally run from 5-8:30pm on weeknights when in season. You will also observe matches for teams in these programs (generally on Saturdays), and assist the Technical Director with evaluating, tracking, and monitoring the individual development of our players in these programs.
As our Operations Manager, you will be responsible for routine administrative tasks, including player registration, managing inventory, ordering and receiving supplies, managing practice and game schedules, and scheduling periodic equipment maintenance. You will also assist with implementing the club's marketing and communication plans, including distribution of marketing materials, managing member surveys, and responding to phone calls and emails from members.
Work hours will be variable and non-traditional, often requiring work during evenings and weekends. This is a 40-hour per week position, but specific duties and work hours will adjust throughout the year to fit current demands.
Applications will be reviewed as they are received. The target start date is May 14, 2018.
