Wanted: Coaches

Coaches and Instructors Wanted

Midland Ski Club is one of the most active, progressive and successful ski clubs in the UK on both artificial ski slopes and on snow. In order to maintain and improve our services we are always interested in new instructors and coaches joining the team.

Our coaching takes place mostly at Ackers Adventure in Birmingham and Swadlincote Snowsports Centre. It is for all ages: children, juniors, students and adults and for both racing and general skiing. We offer competitive rates of pay, great club atmosphere, broad coaching practices, young to old skiers, inexperienced to experienced skiers, racing and recreational skiing.

To work with us you need to be qualified either as a Level 2 instructor or coach.

If you are already qualified at this level then currently we can offer a regular session (maybe two) at Ackers on a Friday evening; there are potential opportunities on Tuesdays or Thursdays evenings too. These are paid positions.

If you are currently qualified at Level 1 and want to work towards your Level 2, then we can offer hours shadowing our current coaches. There is no payment or charge for this, but we do ask for a commitment to working with the club once you qualify at Level 2.

If you are not yet qualified, then we can guide you through the process of getting qualified.

Assistance with costs for gaining qualifications may be available either from the MSC or from external bodies subject to application, depending on the applicant's existing and potential future contribution to the club.

For more information or to discuss possibilities, please contact Roger Crombleholme, MSC Head Coach in the first instance.
