A good communicator: You are a great communicator, easily able to communicate well with children, parents, coworkers, and supervisors.
A growth mindset: You are interested in learning as much as possible about coaching, the participants that you work with, and our Organization.
A self-starter: You recognize and are always looking for ways to positively contribute to the team. We are a small and supportive team. We will give excellent direction, but we are not there at every session to hold your hand every step of the way. While working with participants, families and teams, you are the “go-to” person.
A resilient individual: You can and are willing to handle anything. A participant who doesn’t want to take part in the activity, a frustrated parent, an upset Club Coach… all while working 6 days straight in 100+ degree weather. You don’t shy away from these situations; you approach each situation with a “can-do” team - attitude. Vision coaches can and do handle anything!
A problem solver: You planned an epic session for 12 players, and only 2 showed up and now you must come up with a new session plan in an instant. Being a great coach requires quick problem-solving skills, and a willingness to seek help when needed. We try to keep things very scheduled and organized, but at the drop of a hat, plans can change; you can find a great solution, that rivals the original plan.
A detail-oriented worker: You are responsible for THE most important thing in a parent’s life. Each and every detail is important. Did a player know where to go when they arrived, did they have a partner to pair up with, did they have the equipment needed for the activity, did they understand the directions, skin their knee, make a new friend, lose their ball…?
A leader: It does not matter if you consider yourself a leader or not, the moment children arrive at the program, their coach is their leader and their biggest role model. They watch their coach’s every move and listen to their coach’s every word. Every interaction you have with a participant is an opportunity to positively impact their day, week, month and more.
A team player: You have learned that you cannot do it all on your own and that the best product is produced when a team is working together on it. At Vision, we need all different personality types to be able to meet each and every child where they are and to come up with the most fun activity, most challenging drill, etc.. You have enough experience and wisdom to recognize that success does not come from one person but from an army of people working toward the same goal.
A solid work ethic: You love coaching kiddos and despite the long, hot days, you do it all with a smile on your face because you thrive on hard work.
