We are looking for a creative and patient coach to work with our new competitive Girls' Step Team (ages 8 to 11) until June, 2021. This is a newly developing team and we will not recruit for the girls until we have a coach firmly in place. The team will be trained to perform in shows and parades and will also be prepared for entry-level competitions. Our first performance is slated to be at the Prudential Center in early Spring, depending on the pandemic. Due to the pandemic, our teams are only working virtually. Coaches will need to be available on Saturdays from 3:30pm to 4:30pm to coach via Zoom.
We will examine the safety and comfort of returning to an indoor practice for March. If this happens, our indoor practices will be held on Saturday afternoons at the Rahway YMCA in the Downtown Section of Rahway. Coaches who are uncomfortable with in person practices can elect to just coach online. We should note that the time slot is unknown at this time, as the venue may need to change us around to accommodate their social-distancing mandates.
STEP TEAM EXPERIENCE either on a church, community-based, school or fraternal step team IS REQUIRED. Coaching experience is not required. Hip-Hop Dance experience is a strong plus (as we often are called upon to also dance as part of our competitive routine). Interested candidates should respond letting us know about their step team experience and any burning questions that they have. We will respond immediately. Thank you for your interest and please stay safe and sane.
