Youth Soccer Instructors Needed for Children Ages 2-8
Soccer Shots is a program that introduces soccer to children ages 2-6 at preschool, daycare centers, and community parks across the area. We are looking for a few good, highly reliable, personable and energetic coaches for this summer season, June-August. Our program is year round so those that perform well will be asked to return for future seasons.
This is a part time and seasonal position with scheduling flexibility.
Soccer Shots sessions will be held between 9:00am and 5:00pm on Monday-Friday, and on Saturday mornings. Each session is 35-45 minutes. We provide the training, soccer equipment, and all curriculum materials (three separate age specific books). Instructors are compensated $20 per session. In some cases instructors hold 2 or 3 sessions consecutively at the same location ($40-$60 for less than 2 hours of coaching).
The ideal instructor meets the following criteria:
Responsible – is organized, arrives on time to each session, can handle a group of up to 12 young children, keeps accurate attendance, communicates well with Soccer Shots director, etc.
Professional -- neat in appearance, friendly and courteous with day care center staff and director, and is self-assured.
Enthusiastic and Fun -- enjoys using imagination and having fun with young kids, by being goofy and connecting with kids. We must make the Soccer Shots class the best 30-40 minutes of their week.
Experience Working with Kids -- although it is not a requirement to have direct experience working with kids from 2-8 years old, relevant experience will be highly regarded.
Soccer -- no official soccer experience is required. However, having some familiarity with the game either as a player or coach is helpful and is considered a plus.
*All successful candidates must pass a Child Abuse History Clearance and Criminal Background Check.
