  • Level of Team Club
Blue Wave

with Blue Wave

Blue Wave is growing. We are currently operating out of multiple pools within the greater Tampa Bay area. We are looking to add exceptional coaches to our Brandon Sports and Aquatic Center (BSAC) facility.

BSAC, like Blue Wave as a whole, is undergoing a renaissance. We have just opened a new heated and cooled ten (10) lane by twenty five (25) yard pool to complement our eight (8) lane by fifty (50) meter long course facility; the later of which is scheduled for a complete renovation later this year. We have dedicated dryland and educational areas, innovative training equipment and training programs and a knowledgeable and experienced staff; all of which is helping to reshape the program into a true high performance organization. The growth of the program over the past two (2) years, in both numbers and performance standards, has been great.  It is a good time to be a part of Blue Wave.

We are looking to fill a variety positions;  from those who love to bridge the gap from swim lessons to swim team through to those looking to learn how to design effective seasonal plans and train high level athletes for long term success. Our Head Coach, Rich Rogers, has a demonstrated ability mentoring coaches. Selected candidates will become more than just staff, they will become part of our family.

The program is institutionally owned and Head Coach run. We have a good group of parent volunteers, but no Parent Board. We are continually crafting a culture of excellence in which each individual can meet or exceed their innate potential. As we continue to grow, we want to bring on like-minded coaches who like to work hard, have fun and truly love the sport and the profession.

These positions are part time, hourly positions to start with potential to grow in the future.  Our staff are not in this for the money. Most join us because they want to be a part of an organization that understands the positive impact a well run swim program like Blue Wave can have on the lives of our community’s children. We all like to work hard, continually learn and challenge ourselves and our swimmers and have fun in the process. If you have a similar mindset, and want to be a part of something that is rapidly evolving into something special, we urge you to apply.

BSAC is a certified child care facility. Applicants will have a drug test and undergo a background check prior to employment.

Applications will be accepted until the positions are full. Please send your CV or questions to [email protected]
