Soccer Instructor


Soccer Shots is a non-competitive, character-focused soccer program that introduces soccer to children ages 2-8. We work on-site at elementary schools, preschools, daycare centers, parks and neighborhoods all over Gaston, Iredell and Cabarrus Counties and the town of Denver. This position is for locations primarily in Gaston County. We are looking for PART TIME instructors who are passionate about working with children and have some knowledge of soccer. We have sessions running Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00am-7:30pm and Saturday mornings. There is some flexibility in scheduling; meaning that if there are some mornings or afternoons where you aren't available, we can work around that. However, you must commit to coaching on Saturdays between the hours of 8:00am and 2:00pm (we do have some weekends off between seasons). Once your schedule is set with us, it won't change. You'll be at the same locations at the same times each week, and we need you to be committed for the entire season.

Soccer Shots coaches are:

Passionate about working with children and impacting their lives in a positive way. Soccer Shots coaches are teachers and are required to keep a group of six to twelve 2-8 year olds engaged and excited throughout each session. You must be able to connect with, understand and motivate young children. Our coaches are silly and fun but are still able to maintain control of the group.
Responsible and reliable. Coaches must arrive at least 15 minutes early to each session, keep accurate attendance, follow the given curriculum, attend all sessions assigned, have the safety of the children as a #1 priority while they are under their care, participate in staff meetings and training sessions, be neat in appearance and always present him/herself in a professional manner.
High energy, enthusiastic and able to perform the physical demands of the position with ease. Soccer shots classes require instructors to be physically fit. You will never stop moving in a Soccer Shots session! The work environment during a typical class can be indoor or outdoor in all kinds of weather and the noise level is usually moderate to loud. Coaches must be able to carry an equipment bag that contains 14 balls, Pugg goals and more.
Excellent communicators. You must be able to communicate confidently and clearly with Soccer Shots staff, parents and school directors while still being able to relate to and communicate effectively with young children.
Soccer smart. Official soccer experience is not required. However, having some familiarity with the game either as a player or coach is helpful.
Additional details:

A successful candidate must have reliable transportation, a current driver's license and pass a Background Check.
Applicants must be a minimum of 18 years of age.
Coaches start at $18-$21 per session coached (training rate may differ). Sessions range from 25-60 minutes depending the age of the children.
