    If you have particular states you're interested in, I'd suggest reaching out to USMS and/or USAS leadership in those states. They're all on the web and I imagine they can (though with likely differing degrees of willingness and ability) connect you with teams who are looking to hire coaches. I think ASCA ( also has a job board, though I'm not sure how widely used it is. I doubt anyone's going to hold your 'Canadian-ness' against you, but it'll be a matter of finding the right community that has needs for someone with your background.
