Middle Park High School mountain bike team seeks coach
February 2, 2017
The Grand County high school mountain bike team wrapped up its first season in the fall of 2016, and now they are looking for a coach.
The team's previous coach, Kari Gates has moved out of the county, and now the athletes need someone from the Mountain Bike Capital to step up and lead the team to more successful seasons.
The team consists of the high school athletes who compete in races across the state and a middle school development program. The middle school team does not compete, but acts as a training program to prepare for high school competitions.
The team is looking for a head coach and possibly an assistant coach for the upcoming season.
The team's ideal candidate is an inspirational mentor with competitive mountain biking experience. They seek a highly motivated and responsible athlete with the ability to lead the high school team through a successful season. Coaching experience is required and knowledge of local trail systems is preferred. The candidate must be able to pass a background check and pre-employment drug screen.
The job is part-time from June 15 to Nov. 1. If interested, send a letter of interest, resume and two professional references to MPMTBTeam@gmail.com. Applications are accepted until Feb. 15.
