Aquadogs Open Coaching Positions


(and new swim suits :)

Kirksville's Adair Swim Association (ASA) Aquadogs youth swim team is looking to staff some updated coaching positions for the coming 2012-2013 academic season.

Positions open are:

Competitive Swimming Coach  (which will require some high school or college swim team experience)

Swimming Instruction Coach  (which will require some swim lesson experience)

  • The positions are part-time, and the hours set will depend on coach availability.  Coaches can choose the number of hours per week they want to work, with the minimum being 4 hours and the maximum being 16 hours.  Schedules are set by the semester, and breaks are given according to the Truman and Kirksville RIII calendars.  (There are also 2 returning coaches, for a possible total of 4 coaches.)
  • Generally, most practices are held in the afternoons (after school), early evenings, or Saturday mornings.
  • Most swim practices are held at the Kirksville Aquatic Center, although a few are occasionally held at the Truman Natatorium.
  • Although not a requirement of the job, coaches may also attend swim meets if interested.  Coaches are paid gas, food, lodging, and hours worked at meet.
  • Pay is negotiable, but ranges from $7.50 - $10.00 per hour.
  • Coaches will be background-checked, and, if not already holding certain certifications, will be Red-Cross trained and USA-coach certified.
  • The Aquadogs begin practices Aug 20, and the swim season will start in earnest in September.  Academic year practices will then run through May, and a summer season will begin next June.  
  • These are great positions for anyone who loves swimming or coaching, anyone seeking some part-time hours, anyone with swim team or lifeguard experience, anyone seeking to enhance their educational experience (such as Truman Health & Exercise Science majors), or anyone looking to build their resume with some good management and supervision credentials.
