Job Description
Sarasota Youth Sailing is seeking an experienced and well-rounded Optimist Coach. Our racing teams run from mid-August through late-May. Schedule typically includes full day practices on Saturdays plus one additional after school session per week. Sailors attend about an average of one regatta per month.

Ideally candidates will have a proven ability to develop Opti Green Fleet/RWB racers just all the way through to the USODA Team Trials. US Sailing Level 1 Instructor Certification is required. Our ideal candidate will also have boatwright, workshop, race management, and personal one-design sailing campaign experience. Our coaches work with, motivate, and lead our sailors and parents through the logistical challenges of a regatta travel season in addition to developing on-the-water racing skills. Therefore you must have effective communication skills to both parents and sailors, be organized, mature and have the desire to help our sailors excel. We operate in a collegial and team oriented work environment.

This is a part-time coaching position meeting an average of two to three days per week in Sarasota, FL. We travel to regattas throughout the state and occasionally beyond. 

At a minimum, the coach must be a US Sailing Level 1 Certified or equivalent and be CPR, First Aid and Safe Sport Certified.
 
Compensation is competitive. Please send a brief cover letter and coaching resume to SYS at sarasotayouthsailing@gmail.com.
