with WAVES Bloomington-Normal Y Swim Team
****THIS POSITION HAS BEEN FILLED******
Waves Swimming is hiring a lead Age Group Coach
If you’re the right person, this is a rare opportunity to advance your career in coaching. If you know you are good, and you just need the right situation in which to prove it, then you will want to take a close look at this position.
We’re a small team that can’t pay much. But there is another reason why you want this job, and it’s more important for your long term success as a high level coach. What we CAN do is provide the right person with the support and a situation they have been looking for to show the world how good a coach they really are.
You will be working with our elite age groupers and developing younger swimmers who are here because they want to get to higher levels. Your Junior squad currently has a National Junior Team member, swimmers ranked in the National Age Top 10, and others with senior Sectional cuts.
And there are more who just want to get to Age Group Champs. What they ALL have in common is they need someone to help them learn how to get to higher levels. Not all coaches can do that. And that’s why parents bring their swimmers to the WAVES. Our coaches teach everyone the tools they need to build achievement-confidence through the sport of competitive swimming.
Our team culture and squad culture is already established for high level achievement. Our swimmers show up every day ready to learn and work. Team parents are here because they support our team philosophy.
The Waves team is one of the best in the nation, honored as Silver Medal in the National Club Excellence Program in 7 of the past 11 years. We know how to develop fast swimmers, and we do it in a fun and challenging manner. Our swimmers stay in the sport and they go on to achieve at even higher levels in the later years of their career.
We are located in Bloomington, Illinois, and a program of the Bloomington-Normal YMCA. The WAVES are one of very few teams located in the Central Zone with a National/International orientation. We believe this benefits ALL our swimmers. Our track record of success is evidence of that philosophy.
This job is a good opportunity for someone who wants to prove they can develop swimmers, while being mentored on how to do that to enhance long term success for the athlete. You will be coaching our age groupers, including the elite level, and will be working closely with our other age group coaches.
We provide an environment of support for coaching and swimming excellence. If this is what you need to develop, thrive, and prove yourself, then this could be the right place for you.
Traits required to be successful in this position: good with children, coach is active in workout, good at coaching technique and wants to get even better, can run efficient workouts, can positively inspire athletes effort to push limits on challenging sets. The coach we hire for this position must coach the entire pool, helping all swimmers develop their ability, not just the super talents. This is a TEACHING job!
Our swimmers show up for practice. Their parents come to us for our active learning environment where we give children the encouragement, guidance and specific tools they can use to develop their ability.
WAVES Bloomington-Normal Y Swim Team currently has 65 team members. Long term stability is provided by our coaching staff, the YMCA, and parent support for our consistent team philosophy. You will report to the Director of Competitive Swimming and Aquatics, an ASCA Level 5 coach who has led the team for the past 18 years. Other current and recent members of our coaching staff average eight years of coaching with the team.
Two of our former WAVES coaches have gone on to Head Coaching positions as their next job. Former WAVES swimmers are currently coaching with college, club, or Y teams. One of our former swimmers serves on USA Swimming national committees.
We currently have two Olympic Trials qualifiers; three National Junior Team members, two competed in Singapore at the 2015 FINA World Junior Championships and another will compete in Holland at the 2016 FINA World Junior Open Water Championships. All our 15-older swimmers currently have Sectional cuts. Since 2002 our team has developed 11 USA Swimming summer Nationals competitors, one FINA World Championships competitor, one National Team member, one American Record holder, four NCAA D-1 All Americans in individual events, two National Age Group Record holders, and over 200 USA Swimming National Age Top 10 performances. We take pride in the number of Scholastic All-Americans on our team each year.
During the school year we train in two 6-lane 25 yard pools. In the summer we also use two outdoor pools, a 6-lane 50 meter and a 6-lane 25 meter. Year round the Junior squad does dryland on the pool deck, and runs outdoors if good weather, indoors if not. The age groupers train primarily at the Bloomington-Normal YMCA year round. Our YMCA is entering the final preliminary stages leading up to building a new YMCA with emphasis on the aquatics center.
My goal is to have the right person on deck by the start of the new season in mid-August. Earlier start is possible. Rate of pay based on qualifications. Additional income opportunities may be available within the YMCA. Pursuit of advanced degrees is possible locally through Illinois State University. If you are responding to this posting, it is not because of the amount of pay, it will be due to your seeing and understanding what most teams can’t offer. Your primary reason for joining us is due to recognizing this rare opportunity we offer to your professional development. In all of our sport, there are not many situations this good for an ambitious coach to prove themselves and grow.
Send me a note explaining how you can help our swimmers. What will you bring to the team? What are you looking to learn? Tell me about your competitive swimming and/or coaching experiences with references. I want to fill this position ASAP.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you. Write to me at: [email protected].
