Managers & Head Coaches Wanted
TNLI is always looking for high character value people who are interested in taking on managerial and head coaching roles. TNLI views the role of the Manager and Head Coach as two separate positions. We prefer to have all of our teams each have these positions handled independently.
Managers are responsible to organize the team and their activities. They ensure that all the off field and behind the scenes details are in order freeing up the Head Coach to focus on developing the players. They assist the Head Coach with on field activities as required.
The Head Coach is completely responsible for all practice and game focus and strategies. They are to spend 100% of their time working on development the players skills sets and unifying the team. For those Head Coaches with appropriate levels of drive and experience, compensation for your time and effort can be agreed upon accordingly.
If you are interested and capable of taking on one of these two types of position, please contact Coach Caz by cell phone at 516-551-4466 or email email@example.com to discuss further.
