Working with kids and creating a program for them to have fun is a great job to have. What makes this job difficult is the lack of help from management, your staff, and uppity community. This is a highly independent job in that you will need to be 3 people at once. You will be doing emailing, phone calls, organizing, refeereing, and coaching all at once. You never have enough staff to referee, coach, or help with backend work (emailing, phone calls, etc.).
The compensation for the amount of work you do is unfair because the entire sports program is yours. You should receive director pay, but since you work for a non-profit, you will be lucky to make anything close to $20 an hour. If you take this position, be prepared for stressful weekends, long shifts, horrible management, unreliable staff, and no direction. This particular community you work for will expect everything to be done right away and if you don't give them what they want, they will let you hear it. They won't appreciate the effort you put it, they will constantly complain and blow up your inboxes, and will bicker that the rules are too much for their little susy.
Honestly, if you take this job, I hope you will not encounter these problems, but if you have a can do attitude and you are ready for the challenge, this job is for you.
