Associate Head Coach — Sun Prairie Storm (Repost)
Sun Prairie Storm is seeking an experienced, motivated individual to become our first Associate Head Coach. This individual will work directly with the Head Coach, working to develop a pathway for all swimmers. The Associate Head Coach will run the senior side of the club, from emerging swimmers through our top swimmers. You’ll be responsible for writing engaging, challenging, age-appropriate workouts, helping to develop the coaching staff, and building positive relationships with swimmers, parents, coaches, high school coaches, and volunteers. Other duties include, but are not limited to: assisting with social media, collaborating on facility reservations, and helping with the Masters team.
Sun Prairie Storm was created in 2013 and has quickly grown to a top 10 program in Wisconsin. The team practices at two short course yard facilities (with a second high school pool set to open in fall of 2022) and outdoors at a local SCM pool in May-July. With a strong summer league program feeding the team and great collaboration with the high school team, this community team has great opportunities for growth. Storm has averaged over 200 registered athletes each of the last 3 years with retention above the national average. This year, Sun Prairie High School boys won their first state championship. In the last 3 years, our club has had LSC champions, over a dozen Sectional qualifiers, five Futures qualifiers, and a US Open qualifier. The team is USA Level 3 Recognized and Safesport Recognized.
Storm is a not-for-profit, board run, coach-directed USA club. The Associate Head Coach will join the head coach as voting members on the board.
Sun Prairie, one of the fastest growing cities in Wisconsin, is mere minutes from downtown Madison. In 2020, Sun Prairie was recognized as one of the Best Places to Live in America.
