Roosevelt Girls Lacrosse Club has an immediate opening for a Varsity Head Coach for the spring 2018 season.

RGLC is an established high school girls lacrosse team in Seattle, WA. We consistently field a Varsity and JV team, have made the playoffs for the last 6 years and competed in the state semi-finals in 2016. Our teams are known for their excellent effort on the field, their respect for teammates, coaches and opponents, and for having a lot of fun while becoming better lacrosse players. We are seeking a coach who, in addition to having a genuine love and knowledge of women’s lacrosse, understands and embraces the role of teaching, mentoring and motivating young women.

Our club is financially sound with excellent leadership provided by a governing board and solid support from the school community. The board takes care of all the logistics such as fields, equipment, uniforms, scheduling and registration which allows our coaching staff to focus on coaching. We believe a coach is the cornerstone of a team to provide an excellent sports experience for our girls and thus offer salaries that demonstrate our commitment to our coaching staff.

We have historically used the Lower Woodland turf field near Greenlake in Seattle with practices 5 days a week from 5-7 PM and games primarily on weekday evenings. The spring season begins in the end of Feb 2018 and ends by May 18, 2018. Our club holds one pre-season youth clinic that our coaching staff runs, but otherwise the coaching duties are contained to the high school spring sports calendar.
