How to become a CSS Riding Coach

Recommended Posts

We are looking for qualified coach candidates.  The primary reason is we continue to add is the number of coaches needed per School day keeps rising.  We used to have 2 or 3 coaches--at some Schools it's now up to 15. 

If you are interested, think you might qualify, please read the following carefully, and return the application to me (download here).

1. Racing experience is preferred.  We have to see the riding to answer if the riding skill level will be adequate. Most of our students are
street riders, but we do need someone that can set an excellent example for a broad range of skills.

2. Friendly, personable, upbeat, high ethical standards, fit in with the rest of our team is a must.

3. Excellent communication and observation skills. Willing to be trained and do homework. The coach training is vigorous, not for the
wimpy. Every aspect of what you do is examined, honed, tested, and improved on a regular basis.

4. The positions are part-time or full-time (meaning doing all Schools) for independent contractors but we need a minimum of 15 school days per year.  In most cases, a coach will need to do all schools at a venue, and consider travel time.  For example, if you could only do weekends, this would not be realistic.

5.  Application first, follow-up questions, then proceed to an interview.  If appropriate a tryout is scheduled. That is usually 1 day at a racetrack.

6. After the tryout, there is a short probation period/apprenticeship, but we pay travel and other expenses, use our bike, gear, etc. Probation period depends substantially on you and how well prepared you are.

7. Coaches are paid according to their training/skill level, how many of the training programs they have completed. Starts at
$180 per day, goes up from there.

Friendly, interested in coaching others, willing to study and train, ride at a very high level, and handle long days--quite a package to find.  About 1 in 40 that apply make it past the probation stage. 

We are a school, we train riders and racers and we do that totally. We don't give jobs to our friends because we like them.

Download the application and email it to me.

FYI, this is an ongoing process--choosing and training coaches.  Availability/life situation changes, but many coaches have been on the roster for years, in some cases decades.  A few have retired...then un-retired.  More than 1 retired, went to raise a family, and then came back!
