Re: Coaching job
Thanks for responding to our posting.
As you may know, we are a new club looking for coaches for the
2001-02 season. We are a club sport so we have to pay for everything.
The school will give us around $500 for the year, the rest we
have to come up with but that is the way that all lacrosse works
on the West coast. Even big schools like Santa Barbara and Arizona
have to make their own money.
So far, there are only three people
with actual experience, including myself. So your work would be
cut out for you. Also, we are a conservative Christian school
with rules against drinking, smoking, sex, and cursing. Granted,
we are still a bunch of guys that just want to have fun and be
competitive. So what I am saying is that, as of now, we cannot
offer you any money for the position. Depending on fund raising,
we may be able to offer a stipend at the end of the year.
On the positive side, you would be
running the show. You would have the burden of training an inexperienced
team and helping build the program. If this sounds appealing or
you would like to know more, then by all means let us know.
God Bless, Sean Connally
Dear Sean, Hello!
Sounds like a lot of work, and it sounds good
to me. When I started coaching I was the second year of recruiting
and coaching for a camp that got nothing but basketball and soccer.
We did pretty well for the total lack of experience. I can help
with whatever kind of fund raising...and coaching. I have no problem
with any of the school rules and can help enforce them, but...I
tend to curse when my teams down and has no chance of getting
back...But..not in a mean belligerent way more to myself(out loud)
not at people...That's not my coaching style...Well, I hope to
hear from you... Any info you can provide me with would help,
and any I can supply just ask.
