URBC runs recreational and summer racing for boys and girls with at least one season of competitive rowing. We also run various Learn-to-Row programs throughout the summer. Holy Ghost Prep also runs a LTR camp in June.

We are looking for both assistant and lead coaches for Summer 2019.

Holy Ghost LTR runs June 24-28, URBC will run July and August dates TBD. 8am - noon.

Rec Rowing runs all summer, 8am-10am, Monday-Friday.

There may be an opportunity to run a LTR camp or other programming in the evenings, 6pm-8pm, depending on the experience of the coach and the demand for programming. We also will need Rec Rowing coaches on different days - complete M-F availability is NOT required. We plan on racing at least twice in the summer.

All coaches will be expected to complete background checks and for those working for the HGP camp, a child abuse clearance and training as mandated by the school will be required.
