COACHING OPPORTUNITIES

Do you have a fun, outgoing, and compassionate personality?
Are you driven to achieve goals and get satisfaction in helping others achieve theirs?
Are you able to motivate and inspire youth of different ages to achieve their greatest potential?
Are you interested in becoming a coach or instructor or know someone who might?

We are looking for people with the above qualities that want to keep learning with us and also share their own experiences to help grow our programs and help all our athletes be successful on and off the court.  Sure... it probably would be a bit helpful... but you don't need to be a former Olympic volleyball player or the High School all-star/MVP.  Just like playing a sport, coaching a sport is a skill that requires dedication, training, practice, mentoring , and continuous learning.

Not everyone can work with a bunch of noisy 8 year olds while some can't work with 'snooty' teenagers three feet taller then them - either group can be intimidating and have its own challenges.  We go over what to expect as a coach/instructor in our different programs to ensure you are starting at a level you are confident and comfortable with and then be able to grow into more challenging roles.  Keep in mind however, as with all of our Phoenix Volleyball instructors/coaches, we might ask for help with various programs including our camps, academy, leagues, or with our competitive club teams.

We are planning on having clinics for all our coaches to learn, provide input, refine, and re-learn what, why, and how we teach our athletes.  Our athletes can only be as successful as our coaches and we want to build and grow our coaching program to be the best in the province.

 HEAD & ASSISTANT CLUB COACHES - Girls 13U-16u & BOYS 17u/18u (tbd)

** We do accept girls/boys 15-17 years of age on or before January 1, 2025 that would act as a 'Team Assistant' on a younger team. It is a volunteer role and is for anyone interested in learning about becoming a coach and also can be used as volunteer experience as well. You should have at least 1 season of school or club playing experience.**

Head Coaches should have two years prior coaching experience and also prior playing experience at varsity, club, or university level. You would be expected to attend all team tournaments and lead all team practices while mentoring and utilizing any Assistant Coaches. The goal for Assistant Coaches is to be able to gain the confidence and skills to transition into a future Head Coach position. Assistant Coaches are not required to attend travel tournaments but, like Head Coaches, are expected to attend and help at club camps and tryouts.

As with all staff directly involved with youth, our coaches must obtain the minimum certification equirements as specified by Volleyball Manitoba. This may include certain background checks and completion of some simple online courses in respect to ensuring the safety and well being of program participants. Coaches are also required by Volleyball Canada/Sport Manitoba to complete certain courses/workshops over time and as they progress in age class and in order to maintain their coaching eligibility at Provincial and National tournaments. These are all very simple to complete and we provide any help necessary.

Including a base honorarium, travel expenses, and certification expenses, Pheonix Volleyball Club provides our coaches the most complete and generous compensation package in the province.

Our coaches mentor and share knowledge and experience with each other to become confident and successful in reaching our teams goals. We provide ongoing mentorship, guidance, and support to our coaching staff. We understand that there is always something new to learn and continually seek opportunities for improvement not only for ourselves as coaches but also as mentors and role models for our athletes.
