The Rivers School in Weston, Mass., seeks an assistant Nordic coach. Entering its third year, the Rivers Nordic program is rapidly growing in popularity on campus. The assistant coach will play a large role in helping to foster the growth of our upper school team and our student’s love for skiing and the outdoors.
The Rivers School Nordic ski team prides itself on developing skiers who love to work with a team, embrace the challenges and rewards of hard training, and enjoy the beauty of snowy winters through exercise. We take an approach that focuses on growth. Specifically, our training is designed to allow athletes to build endurance, develop proper skiing technique, improve balance, and increase strength.
Our team is structured to help both elite skiers progress to the highest levels of the sport and help new skiers learn how to ski and race. While racing at its core is an individual activity, we value strong team chemistry. We take the view that you ski better and faster when you are happy, motivated, supported by teammates and coaches, and possess a desire to help your team succeed. We also take great pride in growing students’ love of this lifelong sport.
The assistant coach will be responsible for attending practices each day of the week and 4 races throughout the winter. Aside from the league championships, all races take place on Wednesdays. Rivers competes in the Lakes Region and New England Prep School Athletic Conference.
If you are interested in applying for this position, please contact our Athletic Director, Bob Pipe, at email@example.com
