Job Description:

SNOW Swimming in Loudoun County, VA, seeks Head Site Coach

SNOW Swimming, Inc, a USA Swimming Bronze Medal level club located in Loudoun County, VA, is seeking applicants for our Head Site Coach at Claude Moore Recreation Center in Sterling, VA. SNOW was founded in 1998 and since then has operated exclusively in Loudoun County, which is just 45 minutes northwest of Washington, DC. Pre-pandemic our club was 500+ student-athletes ranging in ability from Novice to National qualifiers. Our club is a part of the Potomac Valley LSC and operates out of three main sites (Claude Moore Rec Center, Dulles South Rec Center and the Ida Lee Rec Center in Leesburg, VA) and regularly qualifies student-athletes for the various Junior National-level meets (NCSA’s, ISCA’s, etc…). We’ve had multiple athletes earn USA Swimming Scholastic All-American status, as well as several athletes selected for USA Swimming Select Camps. We have access to three outdoor pools for summer training, in addition to LCM training year-round for our most experienced student-athletes.

In spite of the pandemic we are sound financially, and currently have a waiting list of 200+ swimmers. We have hosted two LCM meets this season & will host one of the LSC Championship Meets next month. We’ve got great enthusiasm running through our club & we’re excited for the next quadrennium (even though it’s only three years long!). We are seeking applications from career-minded coaches who are eager to develop age group student-athletes in the post-pandemic world, despite all the challenges that entails. You should be fully certified and in good standing with USA Swimming, experienced in developing your athletes to the Junior National level (or higher) and able to work both mornings and afternoons with multiple groups. Additionally, the successful candidate should be comfortable handling meet entries with the Team Unify platform, email correspondence with families, recruiting from the numerous Summer Leagues in northern Virginia and contributing your enthusiasm & various coaching experiences to our staff. Your demeanor should be positive, inclusive & infectious, and your coaching style should reflect that. Our student-athletes should be able to feed off your energy! As a member of our coaching staff you’ll enjoy full autonomy in terms of coaching “x’s & o’s” while contributing to our club’s IM- based philosophy (find what works for your site & run with it!). All USA Swimming certified coaches who fit the above description are encouraged to apply, especially women & minorities.

SNOW Swimming is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate on the basis of gender, ethnicity, sexual preference or religious background. The position is full time and comes with a competitive salary based on experience. You’ll work closely with the Head Coach and the club owner; there is no Board of Directors at SNOW as it’s a privately owned business. The position will remain open until we find the right candidate for this adventure. For more information on SNOW Swimming, visit our website at www.snowswimming.org. Any questions about the job can be directed to either our club owner (teresameike@gmail.com) or the head coach (erikcollins19@gmail.com). All correspondence is kept strictly confidential. Resumes should be emailed to the club owner and include three references and a cover letter explaining why you want to come coach for SNOW. We’re looking forward to hearing from all interested candidates!
