Assistant Coach 2019


The Assistant Swim Team Coach is a summer position for Lincolnia Park Recreation Club (LPRC) based in Alexandria, VA.  The Lincolnia Park Lazers are a Division 17 developmental team that welcomes over 100 swimmers of varying abilities ages 4-18. Our team motto is to “Earn It”. We expect the swimmers to “Earn It” by giving it their all at practices and meets by listening to the coaches, being good sports and teammates and enjoying themselves developing team spirit!


As a key leader for the team, the Assistant Coach is an experienced coach and swimmer. The Assistant Coach teaches fundamental swim technique for competitive swim competitions and also serves as a motivational figure who inspires high morale, encourages recruitment of new swimmers, builds team cohesiveness, provides positive reinforcement and communicates effectively with swimmers, parents, coaches and team management.


The Assistant Coach supports the Head Coach in managing the swim team program: mentoring co-assistant coaches, running practices and clinics, selecting meet entries, coaching at all meets and attending team social events. Specific duties include directing morning and afternoon practices, Monday-Friday, coaching at all meets on the schedule and participating in pep rallies and spirit activities - Friday night fliers being a main team builder. The Assistant Coach shall also attend to any other activities and responsibilities delegated by the Head Coach, such as handling B meet cards and paper plate awards. Practices begin in the afternoon Tuesday, May 31st.


This position will have additional responsibilities of running practices and meets when the head coach is absent. Because of prior commitments, our head coach will miss every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon practice, and one Saturday A meet. As a result, our Assistant Coach will have substantial responsibility, and it will be a good position to gain experience relevant to a future head coaching position.


Our Head Coach, also Assistant Coach at Bishop O’Connell High School, will be the immediate supervisor of the Assistant Coach. She is driven to develop the swimmers to their best potential while having fun.


Lincolnia Park is located on Montrose Road, Alexandria VA 22312 near the intersection of Braddock Rd and Little River Turnpike.
