You will be teaching sailors anywhere between 5-13 how to sail an Optimist. The sailing program at SSA runs from 9-5pm Monday-Friday with a week off in the middle of the program. The goal is to get kids to enjoy the sport of sailing. They will learn how to rig an optimist as well as learn wind angles and simple knots. The main goal is to get the sailors to LOVE sailing. What they do after that is up to them!
You will need to have previous experience coaching Opti's as well as a US sailing level 1, First Aid/CPR, and a valid boaters license to apply. If you are getting your level one before summer we can arrange a conversation. Along with teaching the Opti's how to sail a big part of your job will be making sure the club is clean and tidy after a day of sailing.
