ENDURANCE SPORTS COACH
The PAC was founded on the mission of creating and maintaining the ideal model of an ambassadors program within the endurance sports industry.
The PAC is eager to expand the business's existing successful member-centric infrastructure to offer more coaching resources at a variety of levels.
An endurance sports coach for the PAC is the primary point of contact for all athletes under their supervision. Our coaches are expected to be readily available and able to respond to all communications from their athletes within a reasonable amount of time. Providing a custom coaching experience is of paramount importance. This custom experience includes creating an individualized training plan in Training Peaks, as well as providing ample feedback, encouragement and advice to each client.
Coaching services are primarily executed remotely and from an online setting. Coaches for the PAC are also expected to regularly engage with members of our ambassador program infrastructure -- establishing a personal connection with these athletes is essential to growing your coaching roster. Engagement within these groups may include, but is not limited to, giving advice, sharing workouts, organizing seminars, etc. Engagement primarily happens in our private team Facebook groups, on our ambassador program websites / mobile apps, and through bi-weekly newsletters. Coaching contracting positions with the PAC traditionally begin as a part-time, but we are seeking individuals interested in growing into a full-time position with the PAC.
We are looking to add highly motivated individuals to our coaching staff. Extensive training will be provided to qualified candidates, and they must demonstrate the capability to coach at the expected level prior to being contracted by the PAC. Once contracted, new coaches typically ramp up with a smaller roster until the coach is comfortable and proficient with the tools and systems used by the PAC to provide seamless coaching relationships.
Beyond job training, the PAC will provide ongoing support to coaches by handling administrative tasks associated with coaching. This allows the coach to focus solely on developing their roster and tending to their athletes' needs. These administrative tasks include onboarding new clients, processing payments, accounting, on-demand coaching help/advice, on-going training for coaches and more. The PAC also provides liability insurance to all contractors.
