At CoachCorner, our focus is to be the all-in-one hub connecting any team to any type of coach, primarily in the youth sports coaching world. Naturally, we have explored every corner of American youth sports and synthesized our coaching job database into a small list of distinct categories. Here are the general types of coaching roles you can find on CoachCorner:

Seasonal School Team Coaching Positions

You can find coaching roles, both head and assistant, from the middle school level to the varsity level in just about every typical American school sport, including: 

  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Baseball
  • Softball
  • Soccer
  • Track and Field
  • Volleyball
  • Wrestling
  • Tennis
  • Golf
  • Cross Country
  • Swimming
  • Cheerleading
  • Lacrosse
  • Field Hockey
  • Gymnastics
  • Ice Hockey (more common in certain regions)
  • Skiing and Snowboarding (more common in states with winter climates)
  • Water Polo
  • Ultimate Frisbee (growing in popularity)

For varsity, head coaching, and more senior roles, applicants are strongly encouraged to have prior experience coaching their sport at a competitive level. For JV, freshman, middle school, and assistant coaching positions, rookie coaches are welcome, and the main prerequisite is experience playing the sport at a competitive level. These positions are often paid a seasonal salary.

Club and Travel Youth Sports Coaching Positions

These positions are more segmented by age, will often be seasonal, and are most associated with soccer, volleyball, basketball, and baseball/softball. At the more advanced levels, there could be interstate travel involved for competition, and the top levels will often be higher-caliber talent than the top high school levels. These positions are often paid a seasonal salary, but sometimes they are paid an hourly wage.

Afterschool Sports and Daycare Sports Coaching Positions

Sports are for everyone and every age. We work with dozens, if not hundreds, of afterschool sports and daycare sports programs for kids ranging in age from 1 to 13 years old. These programs usually organize weekly classes, clinics, scrimmages, and drills in a fun, non-competitive environment. These coaching positions are paid an hourly wage, and coaches can expect to work 5-25 hours per week. Focusing on sports like soccer, teeball, mini-hoop basketball, and general physical education activities, these are great positions for high schoolers, college students, and energetic people looking for a fulfilling part-time job. Start them young!

Summer Camp Counselor Positions

Summer sports camps offer a dynamic and immersive experience for children during their break from school. We have worked with dozens of camps across the US, both day camps and overnight camps, who always ramp up their hiring process in the spring. As a camp counselor, you’ll have the opportunity to engage with campers ranging from elementary to high school age in a variety of sports activities. These camps often focus on fostering teamwork, skill development, and a love for sports in a fun and supportive environment. Counselors lead daily sports sessions, organize games and competitions, and provide mentorship to campers, all while ensuring their safety and well-being. This role is ideal for individuals who are passionate about sports, enjoy working with children, and thrive in a dynamic, outdoor setting. Summer sports camp counselor positions typically offer a seasonal commitment with opportunities for growth and leadership development within the camp community.

Full-time Coach, Director, Teacher, and Physical Education Roles

We work with many schools, camps, programs, and community centers looking to bring on full-time staff as well. As a full-time athletic director at a school or community center, you’ll play a pivotal role in shaping the sports programs and athletic culture within the institution. Responsibilities will span a wide range of areas, including program development, budget management, scheduling, facility oversight, and compliance with regulations and policies. This role requires strong leadership, communication, and organizational skills, as well as a passion for promoting physical fitness, teamwork, and inclusivity. Full-time athletic director positions offer stability, career advancement opportunities, and the chance to make a lasting impact on the lives of athletes and community members alike.
