We are again looking for coaches for the BC Provincial and Club Teams as they head to Victoria, BC to represent at the 2012 Canadian Ultimate Championships.
The dates for this year's tournament are August 16-19th, 2012.
The teams are single gender, although only one coach/chaperone must be the same gender as the team. As these student athletes are all 18 years old or younger, the minimum age requirement for the coaches/chaperones is 21.
We are looking for several female and male coaches to lead the single gender provincial and club teams this year (2 per team, 6-8 teams). The training will be mostly be conducted in the Lower Mainland from the end of May until early August as they prepare for the National Championships. There will be teams based out of the Fraser Valley though (likely Surrey), so please indicate if this is a preference or possibility for you.
These are part-time positions that will need at least 7 - 12 hours per week coaching and developing strategies for the summer program. The summer program is usually two evenings plus one morning of a weekend per week (e.g. Monday and Wednesday from 6 pm to 8 pm and Saturday from 10 am until 1 pm.) You will also be required to chaperone/coach these student athletes during the tournament in Victoria.
BCU will provide some of the equipment (cones, discs and a first aid kit). You can also be reimbursed for the purchase of some other materials (with prior BCU approval) that will assist you throughout the summer.
The following would be assets, though not mandatory: - experience with teaching children - experience coaching children - lifeguard / play leader in community programs - strong ultimate skills - first aid certifications - USAU coaching certifications - NCCP coaching certifications - a strong interest in developing the game of Ultimate - a strong interest in teaching
Expenses are covered and a small stipend will be provided. This stipend will be determined by: coaching experience (with the program and other), playing experience, education, and certifications.
If you are interested in one of these positions, please return a filled out copy of the BCU coaching application form to Jon Hayduk (firstname.lastname@example.org) and tell us why you would be a good candidate for the position. Successful applicants will require a copy of the BCU Coaching and Chaperone Code of Conduct form (will be on the BCU website shortly).
