Creston Valley Skating Club Seeking a Skate Canada Certified Coach

August 21, 2016

Creston Valley Skating Club is seeking a SkateCanada-certified coach for the
2016-2017 season.

We are a small club, with about 75 skaters in 2015-2016, most of whom are in
CanSkate. We are looking for a coach willing and able to take on coaching
all levels. It amounts to about 14 hours per week: one CanSkate for Tots
session, two each of CanSkate A and CanSkate B sessions, two Primary
StarSkate sessions, and three or four StarSkate sessions each week.

You will deliver the CanSkate program in accordance with SkateCanada
guidelines, provide group and private lessons for Primary and StarSkate
members, and support skaters in attending test days and competitions. You
will also plan and implement the annual ice show at the end of the season.
You must have attended, or be willing to attend, a Coaches’ Update Clinic
and be prepared to implement the new SkateCanada program for StarSkate.

We have one novice coach who will work with you to deliver the CanSkate
program, and two or three StarSkaters who may be available as Program
Assistants. They, as well as Club directors and volunteers, will be
available to provide support and assistance for off-ice and planning

Our season starts in early October and runs through to early March. CanSkate
sessions are held on Monday and Thursday afternoons; Primary StarSkate on
Thursday afternoons and Sunday evenings; and StarSkate sessions are
scheduled for Tuesday afternoons, Wednesday mornings, Friday mornings, and
Sunday evenings (StarSkate schedule subject to change depending on numbers
of skaters registered).

Salary commensurate with experience. Travel costs for test days and
competitions will be provided by the Creston Skating Club.

To apply, or for more information: contact Tammy Bradford, Interim
President, at 250-428-4315 (home); 250-428-9262 (work) or by email at
crestonmuseum@telus.net. Deadline to apply is Saturday, 27 August.
