  • Crew Coach

    St. John’s College HS is a Catholic College preparatory school located in NW Washington D.C. Our program consists of 50-60 motivated high school athletes.  We row out of Thompson Boat Center in Georgetown and have a brand new indoor erg and weight training facility on campus. 
     
    We are currently looking for a highly motivated coach for our growing women's program for the spring 2021 season.  We genuinely want our student-athletes' lives to be improved by virtue of their contact with this great sport.  As a coach here you will play an integral part in that process by encouraging, fostering, and nurturing the attributes that bring success in crew:  dedication to hard work, dedication to teammates, personal accountability, and finding new limits. 
     
    The team practices 6 days a week in the afternoons.  Stipends will be based on availability and experience.  We hope to also run a summer rowing program.
     
    Responsibilities include but are not limited to:  coaching high school athletes both for water and land practices, upholding school and boathouse policies and safety standards (especially with respect to COVID-19), supporting head coaches in pursuing the mission of the team and recruitment of future athletes.  In a normal season, coaches would expect weekend travel 4-6 times per season for regattas; this spring, we hope to participate in the WMIRA Championship.  Requirements:
     
    - Experience rowing at the high school/college level - Clear understanding of erging/rowing technique;
    - Ability to communicate and work effectively (explain concepts clearly, be receptive to changing approach, etc);
    - Creating and maintaining a safe, positive atmosphere for kids to develop into competitive athletes of high character;
     
    Our program has the strong support of the administration and a wonderful and enthusiastic group of parent boosters.  We are building upon a solid foundation but there is much work to do.  We are excited to meet the challenges ahead.
     
    Applicants should send resumes to head coach Tim Cullen with "Rowing Coach" in the subject line at sjccrewcoach@gmail.com.
