Wedgewood Dive Coach for Summer 2018

Wedgewood Swim Club in Haddonfield, NJ seeks a Head Coach for the summer 2018 diving program.

This championship program enrolls approximately 60 divers, ages 6 – 18. Practices begin Tuesday May 29th with after-school practices from 4 – 6
p.m., Monday through Friday. Starting June 18th, practices will run from 8:30 – 11:30 a.m., Monday through Friday. The season ends with the SJDA 1m
championships on Thursday, July 19th.

In addition to teaching new and experienced divers during the regular practice
schedule, the Head Dive Coach is responsible for:

  • Managing a staff of 2-3 assistant dive coaches (all of high school age)
  • Serving as a judge at SJDA meets
  • Coaching biweekly 3m practices for interested team members at a
    neighboring club (usually 1-2 hours in the afternoon for extra pay)
  • Attending a kick-off team meeting in May, and also the year-end Swim and
    Dive Banquet, date TBD
  • Planning 1-2 fun team building events during the summer (cook out, paper
    plate awards, etc); and
  • Scheduling private lessons (depending on your availability and interest); in
    the past, our dive coaches have been able to schedule 2-3 lessons / day
    outside the regular practice schedule

We are looking for candidates who have winter dive or college dive experience, and who also enjoy working with children. Previous coaching experience is a plus, and our ideal candidate will think outside of the box to provide a nurturing environment, and promote team spirit and fun. Salary is commensurate with experience.

*Interested applicants should email a cover letter and resume to Wedgewood’s Dive Chair, Shani Nuckols.  Any questions, call 215-622-4019.
