We are looking to add quality to our strong and growing program. We have head coach positions available from U7-U19 for the full 2021-2022 season, which begins in late August and ends in early June. SC Gjøa (pronounced YO-ah) has 30 U7-19 girls and boys teams, each head coach will be assigned 4, as well as working clinics and camps throughout the year.

The philosophy at SC Gjoa is on development over just results with the focus being on each individual player, rather than any individual team. This philosophy has created a special, supportive atmosphere within our club that is often lacking elsewhere.

Under the guidance of the club, you will be expected to:

  • Promote a love and appreciation for the game
  • Deliver enjoyable practices that maximize technical work and creativity
  • Maintain administrative duties related to your team and provide feedback and evaluations for all players
  • Provide feedback and evaluations for all players
  • Act as a positive role model for all players in areas such as fair play, honesty, respect and team spirit

Our on-field hours are between 4pm-9pm Monday-Friday, with various kick-off times throughout the weekend. All positions require a one year contract (Late Aug – Mid June)

Compensation for a Full-Time Head Coach position starts at $43,000 base pay, depending on qualifications and experience. Each coach has opportunities for additional compensation with tournaments, camps, 1-2-1 coaching etc.
