Goucher is a small college with a big view of the world. Located 20 minutes north of Baltimore, MD, we’re rethinking and remodeling a liberal arts education. We’re committed to helping students form constructive relationships, develop resilience, and reflect on their individual learning styles as the basic building blocks for a lifetime of success. We encourage progress both inside and outside the classroom, as well as on the athletic fields.
We are seeking qualified applicants for the full-time, 10-month position of head women’s tennis coach. Goucher fields 21 intercollegiate teams competing in the NCAA Division III as a part of the Landmark Conference. The women’s tennis team is primed to position themselves as a conference power and aspires to gain regional recognition with the arrival of the next head coach. The construction of the Evelyn Shroedel Tennis Center, a new 12-court facility will begin Fall 2018.
Reporting to the director of physical education and athletics, the head coach will provide vision, leadership, and oversight for all aspects of the women’s tennis program, to include coaching the team; planning, organizing, and supervising team practices; actively identifying, evaluating, and recruiting student-athletes; and working within NCAA, Conference, and departmental guidelines. The head coach will be called upon to supervise and coordinate the work of volunteer assistant coaches and graduate assistants, as well as play a major role in fundraising activities for the program, as appropriate. The incumbent will demonstrate a strong commitment to the academic achievement of student-athletes by monitoring and actively encouraging participants to succeed academically and represent the College with the utmost integrity. The head coach may teach a physical education course, and participate in administrative assignments and other duties as assigned by the athletic director.
Qualified candidates must possess a bachelor’s degree (master’s preferred); demonstrated success in coaching tennis at the collegiate level, preferably in the role of head coach; and a minimum of three years college recruiting experience. The successful candidate must possess excellent communication, interpersonal, and organizational skills; a sophisticated understanding of applicable NCAA and Conference rules, regulations, and policies; and the ability to travel and/or work evenings and weekends, as needed. The successful candidate will also be subject to a background check as a condition of employment.
