We’re searching for instructors for the 2018/2019 elementary school year (October 2018-May 2019) to work approximately 2-3 days per week with some flexibility. Instructors visit schools throughout their region, delivering basic curling instruction to children aged 4-13 in a school setting. Instructors must ensure timely arrival at school and setup/cleanup the gymnasium at the beginning and end of each day.

Our instructors are energetic and enthusiastic with strong verbal communication skills. They must have the ability to organize, control, and generate enthusiasm in a classroom of 20-30 students. Organizational and time management skills are also a necessity, along with the ability to work independently.
