Head Coach

Experience: Significant coaching experience at college or high school level

The Role: A Head Coach must first and foremost be a positive role model who enjoys being with, and providing guidance to children. A Head coach should possess mastery of his/her respective sport; have an established, successful methodology and be able to assess athlete skill levels, address areas of improvement and establish individual goals for athletes. A Head Coach should have a clear understanding of the mission and vision of camp.

Additionally, it is the expectation that a Head Coach will see themselves as a member of the greater camp community willing to participate in activities beyond athletic coaching responsibilities. Understanding the nature of camp life, a Head Coach should have the ability to adjust plans accordingly and maintain a level of flexibility.
