At Summit Public Schools we believe that all students should pursue their passions. Athletics is one of many ways students can explore their passions. As a public charter school, our athletics program is a compliment to our academic programming. We are looking for Athletic Coaches who are passionate about educational equity and college for all and developing young adult leadership and teamwork skills. Our coaches should recognize the role that sports and physical education play in enhancing a student’s sense of belonging to the school community.
Schedules vary by team. Coaches will run 2-3 practices per week and must be available for all games. Exact schedule will vary based on coach's availability.
Available positions are temporary/seasonal and include a variety of sports, such as soccer, volleyball, basketball, cross country, and more.
