Grace Church School High School Cheer Coach in New York, New York
Grace Church School?s mission of fostering academic excellence, ethical values, and an inclusive community anchors our program and informs our pedagogy and curriculum, preparing our students to lead meaningful and productive lives. The school nurtures and educates the whole child, understanding that our humanity comprises mind, body, heart, and spirit. We celebrate our differences, respect our diversity, and embrace our shared human experience.
TEAM OBJECTIVE: to provide spirit and entertainment at half time at our boys and girls home basketball games.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
Someone with high energy who can teach simple dance routines, stunts and cheers.
The coach will motivate the cheer team to bring positive school spirit to games and help this group of young men and women to be their very best while representing Grace.
The coach would need to commit to two morning practices per week: Tuesday?s and Wednesday?s, 8:00am-9:00am and, if available, Wednesday afternoons 2:20-3:20pm.
The coach would need to attend Spirit Day Assemblies (October), Homecoming (October) and Barclays Center Game (November) and Grace's home games during the basketball season. The season begins in late November and concludes in mid-February. (Games will be scheduled later this fall). The cheer season ends when the Basketball season is over (ie: we cheer until final game or championship game) At that time, usually in mid February, the cheer team will host a low-key celebration of the season honoring the captains and senior cheer team members and will announce captains for the following year.
The coach is responsible for creating an end-of-season video and managing simple edits of the songs we use to perform our dance routines. (most routines are under 2 minutes).
The pay is $30 per hour for practices and games. The dance routines, music editing and videos you create at home you will bill for those hours as well.
