WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
Do you love creating enriching games and activities for young students outside of the classroom? Want to stay active and have a blast facilitating sports and fitness games? If so, then we have the role for you! We are hiring part-time coaches who are reliable, responsible, and willing to work in a variety of programs across New York City. If you’re willing to travel around the city and work with different groups of kids, apply now!
About the role: The Regional Sub role is designed for someone who can be both a recess coach and an after school sports / enrichment coach. Our regional subs would be responsible for working 2-3 days per week, preferably 9-6pm. They would be assigned to “home base” locations for a recess site in the morning (9am-1pm) and an after school site in the afternoon (2-6pm) within their designated region. The current regions for coverage are: Manhattan & Bronx, or Manhattan & Brooklyn. If there is a coach absent at another program, the Regional Sub will be reassigned to cover their recess and / or after school programs if it’s within their region. The boroughs you would travel to would be established during the onboarding process.
Regional subs would be working closely with our program management team and scheduling manager to ensure available shifts are covered, and the on-site expectations at each location are met for the program type. Regional subs would implement a series of age-appropriate group games and activities across programs for children and young adults from Kindergarten to middle school. Typically, our coaches work anywhere from 2-3 days and 10-20 hours per week (depending on availability and skill set) at a competitive daily rate.
- Commit to a weekly schedule of recess & after school (5-8 hours per day, 2-3 days per week) at assigned schools located in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx
- Demonstrate strong organizational and communication skills to respond quickly to our scheduling team and stay flexible with scheduling changes
- Travel within two boroughs each day to support different programs and lead sports / fitness activities
- Lead age-appropriate lessons for kids ages 4-13 in our after school programs
- Implement a curriculum of engaging, skill-based activities that can be adapted to children’s various learning styles and developmental needs
- Display patience and utilize positive behavior management skills to manage children’s behaviors and respond to their needs
Qualifications: If you have experience leading games for large groups of kids, want to become a stronger coach, or already have a background as a recess & after school coach, this role is for you!
Weekly Schedule: Our sports coaches are expected to work 2-3 days per week with a recess and after school shift on each day.
Compensation: This is a part-time, daily position. We offer a competitive daily rate of $125-$150 per day depending on experience and skill set.
