Inline Hockey Coaching Position

Inline Hockey Coaching Position:

We have 5 affiliated clubs in the country accommodating close to 500 players. These players range in age from 5 years to 70 years. Te teams play in different age groups and we are currently playing a league system, 5 league tournaments a year and the top 4 teams progress to the annual Champs.

The following Clubs form part of the "NIIHA family” and all but one can be found on Facebook  Badgers (not on FB) Cazadores , Coastal Pirates, Kamikaze and Scorpions.

The club that is currently looking for a coach, is the Scorpions Inline Hockey Club, with the possibility of one other club possibly having to recruit another coach too. The Scorpions have had the privilege of being  coached by Zach Sawyer, from New Jersey, for the past three years. They are also the current Guinness World Record holders for the longest inline hockey game being played, being 27 hours!! 

The club consists of 74 players, making up 15 teams - these would all be the responsibility of ONE coach. Training is only in the afternoons and early evenings and also only 4 days a week. This would give the coach an opportunity to explore the country over weekends - but only if no organized Hockey activities are taking place.

The coach would commence his duties during the last week of January and these will end at the end of November 2016. The coach and club do however have the option to extend this work relationship. Duties of the coach include:
  • coaching all Club teams ranging from "learn to skate" to adults
  • drawing up of own practise plans
  • coordinating all club activities related to Inline Hockey (games, tournaments, camps)

What do we offer:
  • market related monthly salary
  • housing
  • car
  • return flight to home country of coach
  • 5 weeks vacation time during May and August (coaches could even travel home)
  • medical insurance

The Scorpions have just materialized their dream of getting a roof over their open air court and also installing sport court within the next three weeks.

If there is any other Info you would like, please do not hesitate to ask.

Sporting regards
