POSITION: Assistant Swimming Coach (PT)


Vortex Swimming, Inc. is a USA Swimming member team located in Geauga County, Ohio. Started in 2000, the age group program has developed from a 15-member team (ages 7-15) to a near 60 member team this coming season (ages 6-42). The team is expanding its aquatic sports offering to include SwimAmerica group lessons, and some private instruction where appropriate. Since 2001, Vortex Swimming, Inc. has provided all coaching to the O*H*I*O Masters Swim Club at the Orange High School practice team (approximately 40 swimmers).

This season, Vortex Swimming is looking to hire an assistant coach to help with primarily the age group club and SwimAmerica group, but could be called on to help with the masters team when scheduling dictates.

The successful candidate will possess competitive swimming experience with age group, high school, or collegiate swimming; will have a desire to work with young age group athletes; and will demonstrate a compatible coaching and instructional philosophy with the existing coaching staff.

The candidate will be required to obtain USA Swimming coaching certification requirements (STFSC, CPR, and FirstAid). Additional education requirements will be required for ASCA membership and certification, as well as successful completion of required SwimAmerica training.
