The Role of Coaches

Coaches are a major factor in the learning outcomes derived by club sport participants. Coaches are to provide technical assistance and teaching, on-field game management and administrative guidance. The emphasis remains on student leadership, so while it is not the coaches position to make decisions pertaining to the administration, it is important that coaches help students develop leadership skills necessary to make those decisions.

The job description outlines the generic responsibilities and duties for club sport coaches. Coaches are to act as ambassadors of the University, assist with club sport recruiting efforts and are bound to University Human Resource policies. Club sport coaches will report to the Director of Student Recreation, Fitness and Wellness.

Club sport coaches will be paid a stipend to be agreed-upon prior to the start of the academic year.
