Part-Time Youth Program Instructor

Junction Climbing Centre London, Ontario, Canada

Job Description

Last year, Junction launched our new development program which bridges the gap between the recreational climbing experience and competitive climbing. We are looking for people with the passion and skill-set to teach and develop young climbers in these classes.

Ideal candidates will have a background in coaching sports, a strong understanding of climbing movement, experience in teaching technical rope skills, and a demonstrated ability to relate these skills to youth aged 9 to 18. Experience in competitive climbing, high level athlete development, or routesetting is a significant asset. An emphasis on safe climbing practices and injury prevention is essential. Knowledge and experience in working within a Long Term Athlete Development model is also an asset.

Prerequisites also include valid First Aid/CPR, a clear Vulnerable Sector Police Check, and a lead climbing and belaying certification at Junction (or equivalent).

Candidates must be available for at least one regular weeknight for the full extent of a program session (8 to 10 weeks). This position averages 2 to 5 hours per week and is dependent on class registrations and the candidate’s availability. Additional hours with our competitive team, recreation programs, or other lessons and classes may also be available for qualified candidates.

This is a short-term contract position till June 25, with the potential for extension or renewal in the fall.

How to Apply

Please email all applications to john@junctionclimbing.com, including your resume, cover letter, and weeknight/weekend availability.
