Paddle All Coach Position

posted May 28, 2009, 9:31 AM by Unknown user   [ updated May 28, 2009, 12:15 PM ]
Looking for 2 empathetic and enthusiastic coaches to work with small groups of intellectually disabled and physically disabled paddlers. Sessions will be Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:30-3:00 with youth paddlers.  Adult paddlers would meet Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:30-8:00 pm. The coaching system for the youth would be similar to Canoe Kids so knowledge of or experience with this program would be helpful. Successful candidates must be flexible and able to work in tandem with volunteer paddling "buddies" and coordinators of this important program. Some creativity may be needed to develop a safe paddling experience for physically disabled paddlers. Knowledge of intellectual and physical disabilities would be an asset but not a requirement. Position is from late June to the end of August. Please submit a cover letter and your resume to the Rideau Canoe Club info@rideaucanoeclub.ca by Monday, June 8.
