Coach Wanted
Team High Point Pool
Job Title 2018 Assistant Coaches
Job Description

The High Point HiPPos (Falls Church/Arlington border) are looking for two Assistant Swim Team Coaches.  The atmosphere at the pool is relaxed and fun and the kids (and parents!) really enjoy the swim team experience and have a balanced perspective with regards to outcomes – sportsmanship, fun and performance - all in equilibrium.  Team spirit is strong.

The HiPPos are expected to be in Division 3 or 4 in 2018.  The team has a wide range of talent over the age groups with multiple all-star swimmers, yet a real opportunity exists for the right coach to engage with many swimmers in improving their stroke and the team’s overall performance.  

Our program also includes Junior HiPPos – a program for younger swimmers who are comfortable in the water but need additional instruction to be able to swim a length of the pool.

Requirements for assistant coaches include:
  - knowledge of swimming and racing techniques
  - experience in helping develop workouts for the age-group practices
  - a love of the sport
  - strong communications skills and the ability to motivate multiple age groups and skill
  - CPR/First Aid Certification

Other requirements of the job include helping head coach with swimmer choices for draft meet sheets for dual "A" meets on Saturday mornings, attendance at all practices, working B Meets, Relay Carnivals, and end of year Individual Meets (Divisionals/All-Stars), as well as participating in the official swim team social activities.

Practices will start immediately after Memorial Day weekend. Opportunity for supplementing income through private lessons and clinics is available. Pay is competitive within the NVSL.
