There may be snow on the ground but we are already planning our 2019 summer swim season! The Little Falls Swim Team is currently seeking applications for those interested in a Pre-Team coaching position. These positions are unpaid but do qualify for SSL/community service hours. Applications are due no later than January 31, 2019.

We rely on these coaches to help teach our youngest Penguins the fundamentals of all 4 strokes. Typically, these swimmers are between the ages of 5 and 8 so you must enjoy working with younger children, be a patient teacher, have lots of energy and be a self-starter and team player. We also ask that our Pre-Team coaches be available to assist at “B” Meets on Wednesday evenings during the swim season.

A few things to note:

  • You must be at least 15 years old to apply
  • There are limited positions available
  • If accepted, you will be required to obtain your Red Cross lifeguard certification prior to May 15, 2019
  • Please consider your summer schedule when applying. Our Pre-Team meets once a day (4:00pm-4:30pm) from May 28 – June 13, and twice a day (10:30am-11:00am and 4:00pm-4:30pm) from June 17-July 19. Pre-Team coaches are not expected to miss more than 2-3 days during the season. If you think you may be absent more than this then please take that into consideration when applying.

If you are interested in applying, complete the form below no later than January 31, 2019. If you have questions please feel free to reach out to Claire Slabaugh or Maureen Kramer.

Thank you!
