Fun work environment coaching young students
Basketball Coach (Former Employee) – Allentown, PA – March 10, 2015
It was a pleasure being able to coach the fifth grade basketball team at Jefferson Elementary School.
We practiced twice a week after school and held our games in our gymnasium on Wednesday evenings. The other schools in the league would be bused to our school for game days. For the championship games, the playing teams were bused to a local middle school where they had the opportunity to play in a bigger gym; the students loved it!
The hardest part of this job was managing discipline during practices and holding them accountable during the school day. For the students, being able to play basketball was a privilege; if they were not performing well in the classroom with behavior struggles, they would be held from a game.
I would recommend this position to anyone who loves coaching young students!
