with Nitro Swimming
I wish it were under different circumstances that we were looking to fill a coaching slot, but sadly the swimming world, and in particular the Kids and Coaches of Nitro lost a great Coach who more importantly was our friend. Steve Wolleben was in his 13th year with us, and he passed away unexpectedly at his home. I’ve received literally over a hundred emails from families, swimmers, and former swimmers with stories of how Steve positively impacted their lives. He was one of a kind and is sorely missed.
But Steve would have wanted nothing more than seeing the show continue. And for that reason I’m posting here looking for Nitro’s next great Age Group Coach to join one of the hardest working and fun-loving staffs anywhere.
I know it’s a weird time of the season being the end of September already, but maybe this ad is catching you at just the right time…who knows? It’s a great opportunity…
Our full-time Nitro salaried Coaches receive Humana health/vision/dental. PTO, 401K with matching %, rolling days off (a paid day off the deck the week following any meet that required Sunday deck time), and more.
We have 01 USA Coaches on staff currently. Of those, 17 are full time salaried. Average tenure is 7+ years.
We have our eyes set on the future.
This will be a FULL TIME salaried position which will include all that is mentioned above.
You’ll have the opportunity to coach alongside a TEAM of Professionals who LOVE what we do. It’s tough to have a bad day of coaching when everyone around you is bringing their “A” game. Hard to describe what it’s like without seeing it with your own eyes.
Our mission is simple, but not easy: Visible Improvement. Delivered with Passion and Joy. Every Day.
Nitro is Coach owned with two locations currently, each with an indoor, full Olympic sized 50 meter pool with overflow gutters.
We’re under construction for our 3rd indoor 50 meter facility which will be in Kyle, TX. It will be 40,000 sq ft of awesomeness. We anticipate opening those doors (and lanes) spring/summer ’23.
We will be hiring for our new location in a few months. But the immediate opportunity is at our Bee Cave site.
If you believe you have what it takes to bring 100% every practice, every day, to the kids in front of you; you’re a natural leader who leads by example; who the kids will follow to the ends of the earth; perhaps looking for a place to grow and shine…I’d love to hear from you.
