Job Description

Lead Assistant Coach

The Lakota Family YMCA is looking for a highly qualified swim coach to fill a newly created position of Lead Assistant Coach for our year-round YMCA/USA swim team.  We are located just north of Cincinnati in Liberty Township, Ohio.  We compete as a member of the Southwest Ohio YMCA Swim League as well as being a USA Swimming registered club.  Our club has seen tremendous growth, both in participation and ability level, in recent years.  This summer our swimmers have been championship finalists at Ohio Swimming Junior Olympics, USA Swimming Central Zones Championships, and YMCA National Championships. 

We have an immediate need for a coach to lead our 11-12-year-old practice groups.  This coach will also be the Lead Assistant Coach and work with the head coach on the dry side of running the team.  The right candidate for this position will be someone who enjoys working with swimmers as they transition from more of a technique-based regimen to more of a training-based regimen.  Therefore, this candidate must have a strong knowledge of the technical aspects of all four competitive strokes, as well as starts and turns.

Time Commitment: This is a part time position to start with the very likely potential to transition into a full-time position within the first year with the right candidate.  This position requires 12 hours per week of on-deck coaching.  Availability for weekend meets 1-2 times per month is also required.  Practice times are currently 6:15-8:30pm.  There will also be 2-3 hours of administrative work per weekday for a total of 25-30 hours per week. 

Additional required or preferred qualifications:

  • Previous coaching experience: 2 years required; 3 years preferred
  • Proficiency in TeamUnify, Hy-Tek Meet Manager, and Microsoft Office preferred
  • ASCA member preferred

Required Certifications (must be able to obtain within 30 days of hire-Lakota YMCA can assist if needed)

  • YMCA Principles of Swimming and Diving
  • USA Swimming Coach Member – Background Check and Athlete Protection Training included
  • Safety Training for Swim Coaches from an approved organization
  • CPR/First Aid certification from an approved organization

This is a part-time position with hourly rate commensurate with experience with the potential to become full-time within one year.  Opportunities for additional hours exist if desired through teaching group or private swim lessons and/or lifeguarding at the Y.
