Date posted: May 13th 2021

Location: Tampa Bay, Florida (Brandon)

Passion. enthusiasm and a, “whatever it takes” attitude; it’s what we expect from our swimmers…and what we are looking for in a new Head Age Group Coach. High 5, Inc. is a forward-thinking community non-profit that empowers Blue Wave Swimming to create an environment that fosters the development of champions in and out of the pool. 

We are unique in that we are not a parent run board. Our staff has the freedom to utilize our facilities as needed and implement our seasonal plans without parental oversight. This is a great opportunity to come in, be a part of a dynamic team and make a positive impact on the lives of the people in our community.  We are seeking an energetic, enthusiastic and innovative Head Age Group Coach to lead our growing age group program. 

High 5’s Blue Wave Swim Team is a dynamic, growing club that operates out of its own twelve (12) plus acres facility just twenty (20) minutes or so east of downtown Tampa. We have a recently renovated eight (8) lane fifty (60) meter pool with a dive well and additional cut out for swim lessons. In addition, we have a new ten (10) lane twenty five (25) yard pool that is heated as well as chilled for those hot summer months in Florida. We also have dedicated classroom and dryland space (inside and out). Our program also runs a summer team at a nearby master planned community. Pool time and space are not an issue.

The Head Age Group Coach’s main focus will be helping develop and implement cutting edge educational and training programs for our fourteen (14) and under swimmers. This includes overseeing the lessons-to-team and seasonal program options. The Head Age Group coach will work with our senior swimmers and other training groups as well. The prospect to attend morning sessions, weekend workouts and (hopefully) long week or weekend meets should excite you. A creative, yet disciplined mindset would fit in with us nicely.

In addition to the wet side of the position, the Head Age Group Coach would also oversee the dry side of the program as well. Familiarity with TeamUnify, Meet Manager and/or other meet software is a definite plus. While we do enjoy some admin support from High 5, Inc., , team admin is part of the job. Attending to training and competition scheduling needs, attendance taking, meet entries and the like are all part of the position as well. If I have to list out what it entails to be a successful age group coach, then this is probably not the position for you. 

If you are newer to the profession, and have a passion to learn the ins and outs of running and growing a successful club, this may be the perfect fit for us both. We want to ensure that the environment allows for both personal and professional growth. If selected, be prepared to work hard, have fun and develop some really fast and well adjusted student-athletes.

Blue Wave is a team on the rise. We currently have approximately 200 or so swimmers ranging from age 5 to 18+ and that number is climbing rapidly post COVID. The Tampa Bay area is a great place to call home for so many reasons. Florida has led the nation in opening up so there the quality of life is second to none.

Start Date: Immediate

Compensation: Competitive / DOE

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s Degree or higher preferred, but not required.
  • Minimum of two (2) years as a successful Age Group or Head Age Group Coach or experience swimming competitively with a desire to learn the profession.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills.
  • Positive, “Can Do” attitude on deck at all times.
  • Team player
  • Proficiency with Team Unify web services, meet entries, and communication.
  • Current CPR, First Aid, Coaches Safety, and Safe Sport certifications and membership in good standing with USA Swimming.
