Riverdale Yacht Club

The Riverdale Yacht Club in the Bronx runs a junior sailing school program with Optimists, Lasers and 420s on the Hudson River in June and July of 2015.  Riverdale Sailing is seeking to continue its success in teaching new and experienced sailors by adding to its talented staff. Instructors will coach about 20 youth sailors, 8-17 years old, on the fundamentals of sailing. We are looking for two additional assistant instructors who will report to our head coach and will help to maintain a safe, competitive, and especially fun environment for young sailors. Candidates must be able to motivate sailors of all ages, customize lesson plans as directed by the head coach to suit individual needs, and effectively coach kids on and off the water during scheduled daily activities (drills, practice, games, free time/ rainy days). Applicants must receive Level 1 US Sailing Certification, US Safe Powerboat Handling Certification, CPR and First Aid Certification before sailing classes begin.  We offer competitive salaries, free lunches and can provide free accommodation for the right candidates. The sailing school runs 9 am to 3 pm Tuesdays to Saturdays with Sundays and Mondays off. This is a great summer job opportunity for sailors who want to coach kids from a local New York City community. We are only 20 minutes away from Grand Central Terminal by MTA to the Riverdale train station, which is next to our club.
Dates of Employment: June 14 – July 12
