Job Description
The Greenwich Bay Sailing Association is seeking to hire sailing instructors to teach intermediate sailors in optimists and 420s.
These classes are designed for students who have learned the basics of sailing and are beginning to specialize in each boat as well as learn how to race.
We are a non-profit sailing center connected with the East Greenwich Yacht Club. We are located in central Narragansett Bay and compete in NBYA. Our club has a wonderful community and culture -- our families are supportive and collaborative and often volunteer to help out the program. Parents are a help, not a hindrance, at our club. GBSA is a stand out club on the bay for its sense of friendliness, sportsmanship, and competition. We host the CJ Buckley 420 National Team Race Championship each year as well as local junior events.
The program length is 8 weeks and there is a setup week before the program and another 2-3 days at the end to break everything down. Compensation is salary/experience based and competitive within Rhode Island. There are lots of opportunities to earn extra, through private lessons and other avenues.
Out of state candidates may either receive housing stipend or will be accommodated by one of our families. We are located pretty much in the center of RI, close to Newport, Providence, and the beaches in South County.
Job Requirements
Candidates must:
-- Have experience working with younger children (age 7 - 13). Must be high energy and kind!
-- Be at least Level 1 US Sailing certified
-- Be able to balance competition and fun
-- Be able to keep students safe of the water
