Early Education Soccer Instructor Full Time
*No Soccer Experience Necessary
*Must have valid Drivers License
Have you ever leapt over tall buildings to thwart a villain and scored a soccer goal? Waved at dolphins...in the midst of dribbling a soccer ball?
Would you like to have a job that requires you to have fun, use your imagination and positively impact children while teaching the beautiful game of soccer?
Soccer Shots (the official two to five-year-old program of US Youth Soccer) is looking to expand our team of dynamic instructors to accommodate our growth in the Greater New Orleans and Northshore Area.
We want our Soccer Shots sessions to be the BEST 30-40 minutes of each child's week. We are about more than fitness though. We teach the children key developmental qualities and core values such as social skills, character development and many more.

Professional: Neat in appearance, friendly and courteous in all communication with childcare staff, parents and administrators.
Team Player: Collaborative, dependable, excellent communicator and commitment to elevating those around you.
Soccer Enthusiast: Soccer experience is preferred, however, if you are great working with children, have some familiarity playing the game, and love the game - this can work.

We offer sessions 6 days a week throughout the New Orleans area. Sessions run seasonally (Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring) and take place at childcare centers, recreation centers, parks and elementary schools (aftercare enrichment programs). Session start times vary depending upon location and season but typically fall within the following timeframes and repeat each week: morning (8:30 am - 12 pm) or afternoon (2:30 pm - 6:00 pm).
A typical week: Full-time Soccer Shots Instructors will coach approximately 35-40 sessions a week over five days across New Orleans! These sessions include Saturday morning park sessions, and one weekday is dedicated time "on call." Every week, full time instructors have the opportunity to impact over 250 children in the New Orleans area!
Full time instructors receive a starting salary of $30,000 - 32,000 per year (based on prior experience) with gas reimbursement after each season. There is a 30-day probationary training period upon receiving an offer, with a pay increase at the end of training.
Please attach resume/CV to this application. If teaching young children to use their imagination, believe in themselves, and have fun in sports sounds like a blast to you, we can't wait to read your application!
