Soccer for Success is an innovative youth development program that uses soccer as a tool to combat childhood obesity and promote healthy lifestyles for children in under-resourced urban communities. Soccer for Success uses sport for social change and strives to address the holistic needs of under-served children.
Soccer for Success is currently hiring TWO head coaches and SIX assistant coaches. These positions lead the implementation and oversight of the Soccer for Success program in one of the thirteen elementary school locations across South Seattle (Auburn, Highline/SeaTac, Kent). Coaches serve as mentors and positive role models for children.
Individual program schedules will be determined by Washington Youth Soccer and the school, but format will follow: three 90 minutes sessions per week, spread over two 12-week seasons (fall/spring), immediately following the end of the school day. Start times range from 3:00 pm -- 3:45 pm. Coaches will be expected to work for 2 hours on each of the three days.
The Head Coach is contracted at $50.00 per session and the Assistant Coach is contracted at $30.00 per session for a total of 36 (spring) or 72 (fall and spring) sessions.
Previous coaching experience or soccer knowledge is not required. More important is a desire to positively impact the lives of children.
