Opening: Youth Soccer Head GK Coach for the 2023/24 Year

SC Gjøa Youth Soccer seeks an experienced and engaging goalkeeper coach to join the staff of our well established program in Brooklyn, NY.

This part time position is for the 2023/2024 soccer year, which runs September to June. (The position could potentially be made full time by adding travel team head coaching responsibilities. Please let us know if you’re interested in full time work, or in starting work prior to September.)

SC Gjøa (pronounced YO-ah) has 30 girls and boys teams ages U7 through U19. Our philosophy emphasizes development over scorelines, with the focus being on each individual player, rather than any individual team. This approach promotes a positive and 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 groups and provide feedback and evaluations for all players
  • Work closely with the head coach of each goalkeeper
  • Act as a positive role model for all players in areas such as fair play, honesty, respect and team spirit

On-field hours are between 4pm-9pm Monday-Friday. GK sessions run 3 hours, 2 nights a week in fall and summer and 1 night a week in winter. The position requires a one year contract (late Aug through mid-June).

Compensation for the Head GK Coach position starts at $5K per year, depending on licenses, qualifications and experience. Each coach has opportunities for additional compensation via camps, 1-2-1 coaching, and more.

Candidates must attach a cover note and resume to be considered. Send to the Director of Youth Soccer, Lee Kellett –
