Job Description:

The Bitterroot Swim Team (BST) in Hamilton, Montana is currently accepting applications for head and assistant coaching positions for the 2020 summer swim season. 

About the Bitterroot Swim Team

The Bitterroot Swim Team (BST) is a member of the Montana State Swim Federation. This is a summer league of approximately 9 weeks starting the last weekend of May/early June through the first weekend of August. The Montana Swim Federation state meet is the final event of the season and scheduled for August 1 and 2, 2020.

The BST is a competitive swim program in a very unique and exciting environment. Located in the beautiful Bitterroot Valley of western, MT, we are the only competitive swim program serving the rural communities in the Bitterroot Valley. BST consistently competes for the western divisional and Montana state championships and has between 70 to 100 swimmers each year. 

The Montana Swim Federation league is an incredible and unique competitive swim league designed to serve the many rural communities throughout the state that do not have access to indoor facilities outside of the summer months. We travel extensively throughout the state with opportunities to see all that Montana has to offer including incredible landscapes, great small towns and a close knit family type atmosphere with other teams and communities. Several BST alumni swimmers have or currently are competing at the college level.

BST is prepared to provide a salary commensurate with experience and the responsibilities of the coaching position. We also provide travel stipends and the potential for free lodging with a BST family. A successful candidate will bring a passion for swimming, desire to teach, technical skill in coaching all age levels, and the inspiration to develop strong team spirit and camaraderie. We practice mornings and evenings at the modern Bitterroot Aquatic Center in Hamilton, MT.
