Minnesota P.R.E.P. basketball organization is in need of head coaches to handle designated responsibilties for the upcoming 2013 spring season. Our teams will be open to boys & girls, 6th to 12th grade. Spring season will last from April to June and is similar to AAU type programs across the country.
Duties will include player development, conducting structure practices (2 - 90 minute sessions per week), coaching weekend tournaments (4 in-state & 1 out-of-state), mentoring players, ensuring players are accountable for effort in MN PREP related activities, creating a positive and competitive environment for players to excel, facilitating participation in team study hall/grade checks/community involvement/motivational speaker events, and maintaining positive dialogue with players and parents. Overall, coaching commitment will be 3 days per week.
Coaches will be compensated at two periods within the spring season, equipment will be provided, and customized gear can be expected. Past coaching experience with youth or high school teams is appreciated. Completion of competition at college level or higher is strongly preferred, but not a requirement for employment. Submission to a background check is required and will influence employment decisions for our organization.
