The School has outstanding athletics facilities including an all-weather track, four full size gyms, a fitness center, three fields (including two artificial turf fields), a large dance studio and six tennis courts.

Additional responsibilities may include department-wide duties as assigned.

It is expected that the Head Coach will maintain a high standard of integrity in all aspects of team management, foster a culture that promotes the Quaker values of the School and academic experience of the student, and intentionally integrate school core values as the framework from which to coach and build athletic programs. A thoughtful approach and a desire to constantly improve and innovative thinking will be essential to success in this role.

Candidates must have a minimum of 5 years of successful coaching experience at the collegiate or high school level, and/or in an AAU setting. A bachelor's degree is required; an advanced degree is preferred.
