About Goucher College:
Goucher is a small college with a big view of the world. Located 20 minutes north of Baltimore, MD, we're rethinking and remodeling a liberal arts education. We're committed to helping students form constructive relationships, develop resilience, and reflect on their individual learning styles as the basic building blocks for a lifetime of success. We encourage progress both inside and outside the classroom, as well as on the athletic fields.
It's widely understood that successful athletic programs can enhance school spirit and the overall college experience, thereby increasing a school's marketability and improving student commitment. With that in mind, our dynamic and exciting Physical Education and Athletics Department seeks qualified applicants for the full-time, 10-month position of head field hockey coach. Goucher College fields 21 intercollegiate teams competing in the NCAA Division III as a part of the Landmark Conference.
Reporting to the director of athletics, the head coach will provide vision, leadership, and oversight for all aspects of the field hockey program, to include coaching the team; planning, organizing, and supervising team practices; actively identifying, evaluating, and recruiting student-athletes; and working within NCAA, Conference, and departmental guidelines. The head coach will be called upon to supervise and coordinate the work of volunteer assistant coaches and graduate assistants, as well as play a major role in fundraising activities for the program, as appropriate. The incumbent will demonstrate a strong commitment to the academic achievement of student-athletes by monitoring and actively encouraging participants to succeed academically and represent the College with the utmost integrity. The head coach may also teach a physical education course, and participate in administrative assignments and other duties as assigned by the athletic director.
Qualified candidates must possess a bachelor's degree (master's preferred); demonstrated success in coaching field hockey at the collegiate level, preferably in the role of head coach; and a minimum of three years college recruiting experience. The successful candidate must possess excellent communication, interpersonal, and organizational skills; a sophisticated understanding of applicable NCAA and Conference rules, regulations, and policies; and the ability to travel and/or work evenings and weekends, as needed.
