This championship program enrolls approximately 60 divers, ages 6 –

from 4 – 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Starting June 18th, practices
will run from 8:30 – 11:30 a.m., Monday through Friday. The season
ends with the SJDA 1m championships in late July.

In addition to teaching new and experienced divers during the regular
practice schedule, the Head Dive Coach is responsible for:
o Managing a staff of 2-3 assistant dive coaches (all of high
school age)
o Serving as a judge at SJDA meets
o Coaching biweekly 3m practices for interested team members
at a neighboring club (usually 1-2 hours in the afternoon for

Swim and Dive Banquet
o Planning 1-2 fun team building events during the summer (cook
out, paper plate awards, etc); and
o Scheduling private lessons (depending on your availability and
interest); in the past, our dive coaches have been able to
schedule 2-3 lessons / day outside the regular practice
We are looking for candidates who have winter dive or college dive
experience, and who also enjoy working with children. Previous
coaching experience is a plus, and our ideal candidate will think
outside of the box to provide a nurturing environment, and promote
team spirit and fun. Salary is commensurate with experience.
