    I work as head coach for a University that owns, if you will, the Masters Swimming team. I coach 4 of our 10 coached practices per week and have been working around 10 hours of off deck time per week since i started 9 years ago. I used to coach 6 practices per week before I was asked to reduce my hours which resulted in me hiring two coaches to cover those practices I was asked to give up. I am not able to live as a gainfully employed person under these circumstances. I told this much to my bosses who had a review and have decided to reduce my off deck time to 5 hours and reduce my pay for those off deck hours by 1/3 of my pay, further reducing my income and less time on the clock.

    Can anybody lead a Masters team under these kind of restrictions?

    Let me know your circumstance.

    Head Coach, Denver Masters (but not for long, pretty sure about that)
