Coventry Sailfish

Coventry Sailfish Swim Team is a member of the Greater Penninsula Swim Association located in Yorktown, Virginia. We are currently seeking a Head Coach for the 2023 summer swim season!

Our team serves ~80 swimmers of all abilities from ages 4-18. We strive to provide a fun and competitive summer, where our swimmers gain confidence in the water and build lasting community relationships among our families. We value the power summer swim has in teaching young swimmers a life skill and nurturing a love of the sport. 

The ideal candidate is enthusiastic and knowledgeable, with head swim coaching and teaching experience, excellent communication skills and experience working with young people.   

Primary responsibilities are to develop and implement a summer swim program, aid swimmers in mastering strokes, reinforce proper swim technique, manage all practices and seed meets, manage assistant coaches, and track overall swimmer progress.  The Head Coach should be able to balance the needs of a diversified swim team, from beginner to advanced.

Practices begin the Tuesday after Labor Day, with the season ending late-July.  Practices are held Monday through Friday, (afternoons while school is in session, 8 AM to 11AM at the start of summer break).  Swim meets are weekday evenings and specialty meets are Saturday mornings.
