OCM Swim Club is Looking for Experienced Coaches for September 2019!!

Ottawa Centre Masters is looking for enthusiastic coaches that can deliver a good variety of work-outs, along with technique help and plenty of motivation. 
We are looking for a coach to split coaching 4, one hour practices a week: Saturday and Sunday morning practices from 9:00-10:00am; Tuesday and Thursday night practices from 8:30:-9:30pm from early September to the end of June. 
From September to December, we are looking for a coach Thursday 8:30 pm-9:30pm and Sunday 9-10am.  We hope that a candidate will lead us into our 2020 sessions, January to June especially during our night and Sunday morning practices.
Practice attendance ranges from 10-18 swimmers.  Pay for coaching is $30 an hour depending on experience.
We'd also welcome the addition of a couple of back-up coaches who'd be interested in filling in a couple practices a month, when needed. 
OCM is a small club of about 40 members that has been swimming out of Champagne Pool, at 321 York Street and the University of Ottawa for the past 9 years. Our swimmers are a mix of former competitive swimmers, tri-athletes, to people just looking for a good work-out. We do expect our swimmers to have a degree of ability in the water, so coaches are not expected to teach our members to swim.
If you're interested in helping adults that are passionate about swimming please send us an email at ottawacentremasters@gmail.com  and we'd be happy to discuss opportunities with the club.
