Sakonnet Yacht Club is seeking a Junior Sailing Program Director for the 2021 SYC summer season (approximately 12 weeks from mid-June through late August). The Director will be responsible for curriculum, instruction, and safety. He or she will guide the Head Instructor, and help that person to lead the staff of 12 Instructors, 5 Junior Instructors, and 5 Harbor Camp Counsellors in designing, planning, and teaching classes. Sailing classes run 5+ days per week: Monday–Friday 8:00–4:30, plus Saturday mornings. Harbor Camp classes run 3 days/week: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings.
Who we are: The goal of The Sakonnet Yacht Club Junior Sailing Program is for kids to enjoy their time on the water, while learning nautical skills and forming friendships.
Our Junior Sailing Program strives to promote a lifelong love of sailing, for kids aged 9–17. While sailing skills are what we teach, we also hope to create an atmosphere where kids and families can form friendships and enjoy spending time at our club.
Our Harbor Camp program is an introduction to life on the water, for children 6–8 years old. The harbor camp operates similarly to a traditional day camp and emphasizes safety and fun above all else!
Whom we are looking for: The Sakonnet Yacht Club is looking for a highly motivated individual who is responsible and organized, and has a passion for working with kids. Sailing knowledge and skill are important, but managing and directing abilities are paramount. Passion and patience in working with kids is a given. The Director will need to be reliable and disciplined, and able to represent SYC to our students’ parents.
If you believe you would make a great addition to our team, then we would love to hear from you. Please apply, by February 28, 2021.
