Job Description
For those who are ambitious and want to really make a name for themselves, this may be for you.  Plus we are located on Hatteras Island with the best Waves, Wind and Ocean Sports on the East Coast. 
Coming into our 3rd year, Hatteras Sailing has been growing exponentially.  Island locals make up a small population, but they recognize that sailing is more than just a sport for local youth, its a future on the water, if they are persistent and work hard.
We are looking for a self starter who is ambitious and really good with kids as well as other coaches that we will be adding as needed. Our first 2 years were all volunteer based, but we averaged 24 youth per 8 week session.  We want a Year Round Program!  Volunteers can only take this so far, so now we need a Head Coach, who may soon become the Sailing Director of the Organization.
There are a lot of established sailing organizations and clubs out there looking for staff. This is more than that!  We want you to help brand an internationally recognized and accomplished youth sailing program.  Currently we have 20 Optis, 5 420's and 5 Hobie 18s.
The organization has dedicated members and a good finance committee.  We are doing outreach to try and help other pre-existing programs find ways to run concurrently and be in a position to compete locally.  The club runs rental boats and charter boats as in income source and needs the head coach's supervision and assistance with this. We intend to promote our first summer camp program this year for Island Visitors.  We are refurbishing a waterfront property now in Buxton that will be a nice, appropriately sized Sailing Center for Hatteras Island, only 5 minutes from the best surf break on the East Coast at Lighthouse Beach.
Salary is commensurate with experience.  Things like previous coaching and management experience, US Sailling Small boat instructor certifications, USCG Captains License are all things considered in the salary discussion.  We need help building boats and repairing sails in the off season.  During winter months we want our kids to travel south to warm weather regattas and keep at it year round.  If you have a competitive sailing schedule, we encourage that and will work around within reason. 
Job Requirements
Previous experience coaching and sailing youth programs. Understanding of boat rental programs and risk management. Competent powerboating experience... USCG License is a BIG PLUS, or willingness to get it soon! We teach both the fun and the competitive aspect. Head coach should be able to guide any volunteers and assistant coaches on how to reinforce daily skills objectives. Transportation and valid license are necessary. Good with parents and their kids, even in challenging situations. Able to stay positive.
