About KSC and Homer

KSC (kachemakswim.org) has drawn the most consistent participation among youth sports in our small, maritime, aquatics-oriented town over the past 30+ years.  The largest cohorts of swimmers are in the pre-competitive and age-group programs, and we want a head coach who can build upon this strength and develop a larger, more vibrant and competitive club.  Although we have talented and dedicated swimmers across all ages, the primary areas for growth are in the upper age-group and senior programs.  Our departed head coach had established a heightened competitive focus, rigorous training regiments and dedication to continuous improvement.  His successor will need continue these, as well as to accommodate more recreational-minded swimmers in the program (Alaska does not have recreational swim programs like other LSCs.).  We practice (and compete) in a meticulously maintained 6-lane, 25-yard indoor facility on the campus of Homer High School.

Homer is a hamlet of 5,000 residents, with approximately 4,000 additional people residing in the surrounding areas within a reasonable commute.  Outdoor recreation, art and sheer beauty attract people from around the world.  Principal industries are tourism, government/education, health care, commercial fishing, and affiliated services.

Head Coach expectations/responsibilities

  • Be the CEO of the swim program.
  • Coach one ore more groups, most likely to include upper-age group and senior teams, and maintain oversight over all other groups.
  • Supervise, train and evaluate assistant coaches to achieve team vision and objectives.
  • Attend monthly board meetings and provide written report on swim program.
  • Collect and input all meet entries into HyTek.
  • Lead recruitment and retention efforts utilizing local media and incentive programs.
  • Model integrity and a positive attitude via daily interactions with swimmers, parents and colleagues.
  • Demonstrate eligibility to work in the U.S.A.


  • KSC itself can offer a salary of $25-30k per year depending on experience and qualifications (including willingness and experience in coaching Masters team), plus bonuses for club growth.
  • Homer High School assistant swim coach is also currently open at kpbsd.org.  Head coach position would likely become available to a good candidate next swim season.  Coaching high school is an important piece of building a quality swim program in the Alaska LSC so you maintain contact with senior swimmers during the 12-week high school season.
  • Other aquatic occupational opportunities include private lessons, lifeguarding and learn-to-swim supervision.
