With a similar role already existent in the Ulster Region, the goal of the two positions  are to oversee  and ensure the best possible Development Pathway delivery and coaching within Club programmes within the Region/s by working in conjunction with Clubs, coaches and volunteers to ensure that opportunities and experiences for athletes exist for them to progress, thrive and reach their full potential

 

The  Regional  Pathway  Development   Coach will have a  roving  role.  Working from a  ‘hot  desk’  in  the University of Limerick or Sport HQ Blanchardstown, the Coach will agree a fully budgeted work plan with the National Performance Pathway Manager in terms of Club and coach visits within the Region/s.

“High performing people in a high performance system working in unison to consistently achieve Olympic and World medals.”

 

Central to achieving this Vision is a core set of principles which underpin this role:

 

Long-Term Perspective

We are committed to a long-term Programme focused on recurrent success not on short-term Olympic or World Championship cycles;

 

Systemic

Our goal is to create a ‘system’ that is capable of developing the full potential of our athletes repeatedly rather

than one-off successes based on individual athletes;

 

People

The  Programme  is  centered  on  the  people  within  the  system  –  athletes,  coaches,  support  staff,  and administrators and developing their capability to ensure that they reach world-class standard for the good of the Programme as a whole;

 

Positive Journey

We aspire to make participation in the Programme a positive journey for all, leaving people in a better place for having been part of the Programme and having created an aspiration for others to be involved

 

Applicants must display:

 

▪    Knowledge and experience in the development, organisation, implementation and coordination of high performing Club programmes at Development level and the development of athletes through appropriate coaching standards and expectations to ensure that all individuals within the Region/s are given the opportunity to maximise their potential, including an understanding of swimming specific Long Term Athlete Development models

 

▪    Excellent communication skills, including the mentoring, managing and enabling Club swimming coaches, volunteers and other key partners

 

▪    The  building  and  maintaining  of  strong  relationships  with  Clubs,  coaches,  athletes,  athlete  families, schools and partner service providers to continually encourage the ‘team around the athlete’ to progress them towards the next level of their individual development

 

▪    The development of the National Programme as a whole to ensure the continued success of competitive swimming within Swim Ireland

 

Applicants must understand that:

 

▪            They will visit Clubs and coaching programmes to support coaches and athletes as and when required

 

▪            They will work all necessary hours to fulfil the requirements of the post

 

▪            There will be a requirement to work unsocial hours including early mornings, evenings and weekends

▪    A comprehensive CV relevant to the position, including three referees, one of which must be the current employer

FL, FORT LAUDERDALE – ASCA National Office – 2 Administrative Positions (with some coaching on the side) – Listed 05/16/2017

2 Administrative Positions (Part Time On-Deck Coaching Also Possible)
FLORIDA, FORT LAUDERDALE
ASCA National Office
Listed May 16, 2017

The ASCA national office is seeking to enhance the quality of our member and partner services with the addition of two new positions.  (Pardon the lack of TITLES on these positions – we’re opening the front doors of the bus and looking to get the right people on board.  Right people first, titles second.)

The first position is for an incredibly detail oriented person – and we’re not just saying it:  we mean it — details, details, details.  If you have a provable history of near OCPD attention to details and you possess a “serve rather than be served” approach to your work then we would like to hear from you.

The second position requires a different personality type:  it’s about sales.  It’s about providing our advertisers, sponsors, and partners with what they need and without the used car salesman’s pitch or the faux Madison Avenue shallow and insincere rhetoric.  Our partners are long term, and they are down to earth people, and they trust us, and we care for them.  We learn their needs, we find solutions, we provide world class service.  If you have people skills, and excellent sales skills, and a resume with RESULTS rather than activity then we want to hear from you.

Because we are a small office, titles don’t mean a lot.  We all work at everything from stuffing envelopes to major project planning, follow through, and earned results.  We have office hours of 8 – 5 but on just about any day you’re going to find people here before 6 AM and after 6 PM.

Also, if you love to coach we have a part time coaching position available.  It’s a small local USAS swimming team of ages 6 through high school aged swimmers that is coach owned and run for love of children and love of the sport.  If you are qualified and interested in this coaching opportunity, that would be an added asset – but not a requirement of the administrative positions.

Apply for either of these jobs only if you LIKE to work, and you are capable of working effectively, and if you get a sense of satisfaction from helping others.  Send us a tuned-for-the-position resume and a well-crafted cover letter explaining why you would like to work here, why you are qualified to work here, and your salary expectations.  Send to John Leonard at jleonard@swimmingcoach.org.  Our timeline is:  as soon as possible but only with the right people on the bus.

With a similar role already existent in the Ulster Region, the goal of the two positions  are to oversee  and ensure the best possible Development Pathway delivery and coaching within Club programmes within the Region/s by working in conjunction with Clubs, coaches and volunteers to ensure that opportunities and experiences for athletes exist for them to progress, thrive and reach their full potential

 

The  Regional  Pathway  Development   Coach will have a  roving  role.  Working from a  ‘hot  desk’  in  the University of Limerick or Sport HQ Blanchardstown, the Coach will agree a fully budgeted work plan with the National Performance Pathway Manager in terms of Club and coach visits within the Region/s.

“High performing people in a high performance system working in unison to consistently achieve Olympic and World medals.”

 

Central to achieving this Vision is a core set of principles which underpin this role:

 

Long-Term Perspective

We are committed to a long-term Programme focused on recurrent success not on short-term Olympic or World Championship cycles;

 

Systemic

Our goal is to create a ‘system’ that is capable of developing the full potential of our athletes repeatedly rather

than one-off successes based on individual athletes;

 

People

The  Programme  is  centered  on  the  people  within  the  system  –  athletes,  coaches,  support  staff,  and administrators and developing their capability to ensure that they reach world-class standard for the good of the Programme as a whole;

 

Positive Journey

We aspire to make participation in the Programme a positive journey for all, leaving people in a better place for having been part of the Programme and having created an aspiration for others to be involved

 

Applicants must display:

 

▪    Knowledge and experience in the development, organisation, implementation and coordination of high performing Club programmes at Development level and the development of athletes through appropriate coaching standards and expectations to ensure that all individuals within the Region/s are given the opportunity to maximise their potential, including an understanding of swimming specific Long Term Athlete Development models

 

▪    Excellent communication skills, including the mentoring, managing and enabling Club swimming coaches, volunteers and other key partners

 

▪    The  building  and  maintaining  of  strong  relationships  with  Clubs,  coaches,  athletes,  athlete  families, schools and partner service providers to continually encourage the ‘team around the athlete’ to progress them towards the next level of their individual development

 

▪    The development of the National Programme as a whole to ensure the continued success of competitive swimming within Swim Ireland

 

Applicants must understand that:

 

▪            They will visit Clubs and coaching programmes to support coaches and athletes as and when required

 

▪            They will work all necessary hours to fulfil the requirements of the post

 

▪            There will be a requirement to work unsocial hours including early mornings, evenings and weekends

All applications will be treated with the utmost confidentiality and should be made by submitting the following to hp@swimireland.ie

 

▪    A cover letter to include a personal statement addressing the essential criteria, and why an applicant believes their skills, experience and values meet the requirements of the position

 

▪    A comprehensive CV relevant to the position, including three referees, one of which must be the current employer

 

Closing Date: 1200 GMT Monday 31/07/17 with interviews likely to take place in Dublin in the week beginning

FL, FORT LAUDERDALE – ASCA National Office – 2 Administrative Positions (with some coaching on the side) – Listed 05/16/2017

2 Administrative Positions (Part Time On-Deck Coaching Also Possible)
FLORIDA, FORT LAUDERDALE
ASCA National Office
Listed May 16, 2017

The ASCA national office is seeking to enhance the quality of our member and partner services with the addition of two new positions.  (Pardon the lack of TITLES on these positions – we’re opening the front doors of the bus and looking to get the right people on board.  Right people first, titles second.)

The first position is for an incredibly detail oriented person – and we’re not just saying it:  we mean it — details, details, details.  If you have a provable history of near OCPD attention to details and you possess a “serve rather than be served” approach to your work then we would like to hear from you.

The second position requires a different personality type:  it’s about sales.  It’s about providing our advertisers, sponsors, and partners with what they need and without the used car salesman’s pitch or the faux Madison Avenue shallow and insincere rhetoric.  Our partners are long term, and they are down to earth people, and they trust us, and we care for them.  We learn their needs, we find solutions, we provide world class service.  If you have people skills, and excellent sales skills, and a resume with RESULTS rather than activity then we want to hear from you.

Because we are a small office, titles don’t mean a lot.  We all work at everything from stuffing envelopes to major project planning, follow through, and earned results.  We have office hours of 8 – 5 but on just about any day you’re going to find people here before 6 AM and after 6 PM.

Also, if you love to coach we have a part time coaching position available.  It’s a small local USAS swimming team of ages 6 through high school aged swimmers that is coach owned and run for love of children and love of the sport.  If you are qualified and interested in this coaching opportunity, that would be an added asset – but not a requirement of the administrative positions.

Apply for either of these jobs only if you LIKE to work, and you are capable of working effectively, and if you get a sense of satisfaction from helping others.  Send us a tuned-for-the-position resume and a well-crafted cover letter explaining why you would like to work here, why you are qualified to work here, and your salary expectations.  Send to John Leonard at jleonard@swimmingcoach.org.  Our timeline is:  as soon as possible but only with the right people on the bus.
