Masters Swim Coach

Job Description:

Location: 533 Lomas Santa Fe Dr, Solana Beach, CA 92075, USA

Solana Beach Swim Masters


Solana Beach Swim Masters has been offering daily practices since February 1994 in beautiful Solana Beach, CA at the Pardee Aquatics Center branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito. To take the program to the next level, we are seeking a dynamic, inviting, and experienced COACH to lead the way!

Our program includes all levels of adult swimmers (fitness, training, triathletes, former collegiate, open water, surfers, paddle, etc.)—and we need a coach who has experience across the board! We have beginners all the way up to Ironman World Champions and have been a stop for many top pros on their way to Kona.


The new coach will be present at most workouts totaling approximately 20 to 25 hours on-deck and an additional approximately 5 to 10 hours of admin, events, team-growth, social events, swim meets, etc. = Total of approximately 30-35 hours per week.

Current Practice Schedule:

  • Intro to Masters:
    • Mon, Wed, Fri 10:45-11:45 a.m.
  • Masters:
    • Mon through Fri 5:15-6:30 a.m. and 6:30-7:45 a.m., 11:45-1:00 p.m.
    • Sat and Sun 10:00 – 11:15 a.m.

Depending on candidate availability this could be Part-time with benefits (avg. 30 hours per week) or Part-time without benefits. We are looking for the best fit for our program and can offer the hours and commitments listed above or scale-back the hours and commitment for the right person. For example: if 30 hours per week is too much but you are interested, we encourage you to apply.
