|Job Title||Head Swim Coach - 2023 Season|
The Orange Hunt Swim and Tennis Club is accepting applications for our Swim Team Head Coach position.
Orange Hunt Swim and Tennis Club is located in Springfield, VA and competed in NVSL’s Division 4 for the 2022 summer swim season. View our club website here. The Shark’s Swim Team and MiniShark program typically has about 100 families with 175-225 swimmers across all ages.
We are currently looking for an individual to lead our competitive and fun neighborhood team! The ideal candidate is high-energy, positive, and focused on developing all swimmers. Our team’s focus is not only on stroke technique but also sportsmanship, teamwork, and team spirit!
The head coach will be assisted by one to two assistant coaches and will manage several other junior lane coaches.
Our practices begin the day after Memorial Day and continue in evenings until Fairfax County Public School is out at which time they move to the mornings, Monday through Friday. Swim meets are held Monday evenings and Saturday mornings. We will also be holding evening clinics and other opportunities for additional stroke development under the supervision of the head coach. Providing private, user-pay lessons outside practice times is also encouraged and preferred.
In 2022 we started a non-competitive Masters’ Swim program that was very successful. This practice is before Swim Team, and is under the supervision of our Head Coach with the help of an assistant coach. Compensation is given for this additional coaching responsibility. We expect 30-40 adult swimmers.
