Quadfathers seek Head Coach

The Quadfathers are seeking a head coach for the upcoming 2014 season and beyond.
Our head coach is expected to work with the team, creating sound and innovative practice plans, strategizing for upcoming bouts, and utilizing their own enthusiasm and experience to make the Quadfathers the best they can be.
The Quadfathers currently practice on Sundays, from 1pm-4pm at the Utica Center for Development in downtown Utica. At the end of February, the Quadfathers will also be adding a Wednesday night practice from 7p-10p at the same location. On/around April 1st, the practices will move to our “summer” home, JFK Arena in Rome. We would expect our coach to be able to make at least one practice per week, hopefully more.
If you are interested in coaching the Quadfathers, please contact us at info@quadfathers.com, with a brief explanation of why you would like to coach The Quadfathers, along with a general description of what you feel you can contribute to the team.
