Head Boys Wrestling Coach

Posted about 10 months ago by evansingleton

Baltimore Collegiate School for Boys is an all-male public charter school located in Baltimore, MD in search of a qualified, highly motivated Boys Wrestling Coach.

The Boys’ Wrestling Coach sets practice schedules and develops an appropriate course of conditioning for his athletes. Coaching is monitored teaching and training of various skills needed for the athlete to succeed in competition through leadership, integrity and teamwork. Coaches should guide their athletes to improve (progressively) throughout the season. It is the job of the coaches to motivate an athlete. Because of the individual nature of the sport, coaches work one-on-one with wrestlers to assess abilities, develop goals and objectives for the season and determine appropriate weight divisions. This involves teaching wrestling moves and strategies and educating wrestlers about the rules of competition. A coach is also charged with instilling sound nutrition practices to ensure athletes are well-nourished without going significantly over or under assigned wrestling weight categories.

Even though wrestling is an individual sport, team cohesiveness can contribute to increased camaraderie and moral support, which can ultimately lead to enhanced performance levels. A wrestling coach teaches athletes the fundamentals of sportsmanship. This includes appropriate and inappropriate conduct on and off the mat, such as respect for rivals and officials. A wrestling coach is also charged with encouraging teammates to work with each other, follow industry safety standards and strive for pre-established goals.

All interested candidates should have experience as a high school wrestler and/or youth coach.

Interested candidates should contact Evan Singleton at esingleton@baltimorecollegiate.org

This is a part-time position that will begin immediately.
