* Prepare daily and seasonal workouts, skill sets, and group practices
* Support the team’s mission, vision, and core values by providing leadership and team management in a professional manner. Ensure that all team operations are completed in a timely and organized manner

* Attend swim meets
* Attend and participate in Board meetings as a non­voting member
* Lead swimmer recruitment/retention efforts
* Foster solid relationships with athletes and families

Minimum  Requirements:
* Meet all USA Swimming coaching requirements
* At least 2 years of swim coaching experience and 1 year of management/administrative experience

Desirable  Requirements:
* ASCA level 2 certification or higher
* Previous experience as head coach
* Experience as a competitive swimmer at the collegiate level

Community:
Mitchell is the 6th largest city in South Dakota with a population of approximately 15,000 and is the home of Dakota Wesleyan University and Mitchell Technical Institute.  Mitchell is located about one hour west of Sioux Falls metropolitan area (150,000+ population).  Mitchell is unique and surprising. Outdoor recreation and natural beauty are key parts of Mitchell’s identity. It is an outstanding community whose residents out­think, out­produce and out­perform. Mitchell is also home to the World’s Only Corn Palace.  Uniquely positioned, Mitchell offers the best of small­town living with bigger­city possibilities.  We want to attract new residents to experience the Mitchell difference. The difference is in our schools, our vibrant family­centered amenities, the jobs we offer, the quality of life and the affordable living.  http://www.movetomitchell.com/

Salary  and  Application  Requirements:
MAC offers a competitive salary package commensurate with experience.  The package includes a base salary, profit sharing from SwimAmerica, health insurance stipend, paid vacation, paid professional development, and travel expense reimbursement for meets.  The potential for additional financial incentives may be available and will be negotiated when an employment contract is drafted. A relocation assistance package may also be considered pending qualifications.

IRELAND, DUBLIN – Swim Ireland – National Head Coach – Listed 09/16/16

National Head Coach Position
IRELAND, DUBLIN
Swim Ireland
Listed September 16, 2016

Swim Ireland is seeking a highly qualified swimming coach with proven international podium success to assume the role of National Head Coach.  This role will be the primary technical lead for Ireland’s high performance swimming programmes, providing oversight of all National Squad athletes, regardless of location and in some cases directly coaching elite and sub-elite (Juniors/Youth) swimmers based at the High Performance Training Centre at the National Aquatic Centre in Dublin.

The National Head Coach will be responsible to the National Performance Director (NPD) and together they will work collaboratively and in unison to lead and deliver the Swim Ireland 2017-2020 High Performance Plan and to identify and prepare Ireland’s elite swimmers for the 2018 European Championships, 2019 World Championships and 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games campaign, and 2 years beyond. This post is supported by Sport Ireland and will work closely with the Irish Institute of Sport.

Our vision for High Performance Swimming is:

“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:

·             Long-term perspective: we are committed to a long-term Performance Programme focussed 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;

·             Podium: we are in the medals business – our programme aspires to deliver Olympic and World Championship medals;

·             People: the High Performance Programme is centred 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;

·             Positive journey: we aspire to make participation in the High Performance Programme a positive journey for all, leaving people in a better place for having been part of the programme and creating an aspiration for others to be involved.

It is important to note that while we are committed to long term success and sustainability, there is an expectation that clearly identified and agreed annual targets will drive and underpin short term success and systemic development.

Applications must be made by submitting the following to hpprojects@swimireland.ie:
·             Cover letter;
·             Comprehensive CV relevant to the position, including 3 referees, and
·             Personal statement addressing the essential criteria, and why you believe your skills, experience and values meet the requirements of the position.

IRELAND, DUBLIN – Swim Ireland – National Head Coach – Listed 09/16/16

National Head Coach Position
IRELAND, DUBLIN
Swim Ireland
Listed September 16, 2016

Swim Ireland is seeking a highly qualified swimming coach with proven international podium success to assume the role of National Head Coach.  This role will be the primary technical lead for Ireland’s high performance swimming programmes, providing oversight of all National Squad athletes, regardless of location and in some cases directly coaching elite and sub-elite (Juniors/Youth) swimmers based at the High Performance Training Centre at the National Aquatic Centre in Dublin.

The National Head Coach will be responsible to the National Performance Director (NPD) and together they will work collaboratively and in unison to lead and deliver the Swim Ireland 2017-2020 High Performance Plan and to identify and prepare Ireland’s elite swimmers for the 2018 European Championships, 2019 World Championships and 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games campaign, and 2 years beyond. This post is supported by Sport Ireland and will work closely with the Irish Institute of Sport.

Our vision for High Performance Swimming is:

“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:

·             Long-term perspective: we are committed to a long-term Performance Programme focussed 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;

·             Podium: we are in the medals business – our programme aspires to deliver Olympic and World Championship medals;

·             People: the High Performance Programme is centred 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;

·             Positive journey: we aspire to make participation in the High Performance Programme a positive journey for all, leaving people in a better place for having been part of the programme and creating an aspiration for others to be involved.

It is important to note that while we are committed to long term success and sustainability, there is an expectation that clearly identified and agreed annual targets will drive and underpin short term success and systemic development.

Applications must be made by submitting the following to hpprojects@swimireland.ie:
·             Cover letter;
·             Comprehensive CV relevant to the position, including 3 referees, and
·             Personal statement addressing the essential criteria, and why you believe your skills, experience and values meet the requirements of the position.

All applications will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.
