Job Description

The USA Volleyball Women’s National Team is looking for volunteer coaches for both the Summer Training Blocks. Volunteer coaches have the opportunity to work closely with the top female athletes in the world, as well as with the Women’s National Team staff, including Head Coach Karch Kiraly. Part of the USA Women’s National Team mission is to push the boundaries of the sport, so volunteer coaches often have the opportunity to assist with new learning and teaching methods, new studies to gain insight into the game, and other tasks and projects that will help our USA players be the best in the world.  As such, a familiarity with and willingness to learn technology and its uses are essential for a volunteer coach.

The Summer Training Block begins the first week of May and runs through mid-August. Practice sessions are 8:00 - noon, with office hours for the staff (video analysis, scouting, etc) running until about 6:00pm.

  • Assisting with all aspects of practice sessions

  • Helping to set up practice courts and facilitate practice sessions

  • Assisting with practice video, replay technologies, etc.

  • Compiling scouting information, helping organize scouting reports

  • Video study: compiling video montages for USA players

  • Video study: charting and studying international matches

  • Statistical analysis

  • Assisting with USA Red-Blue exhibition matches, including match setup, fan experience, etc.

Qualifications

  • Volleyball coaching and/or playing experience (duties assigned in proportion to experience)

  • Experience with or willingness to learn various technology-related applications including Excel, DataVolley, Dartfish, and Kinovea.

  • Must become a USA Volleyball member and successfully pass a USA Volleyball background screening
