Summer Coaching Internship
Designed for 7th-12th graders, VABA's Summer Coaching Internship Program provides valuable leadership experience as a part of VABA's Summer Camp Staff. Our goal is to continue to train future coaches or teachers, or those individuals who are interested in furthering their teaching and/or leadership skills and working with kids.
VABA Coaching Interns will be a part of the VABA summer staff, mingling with VABA's paid, professional staff, attending staff meetings, pre-camp preparations and all on-court teaching sessions. Prospective interns should look at the Summer Camp Schedule and determine which sessions he/she can be present for, complete the online application and await contact from VABA's Summer Program Director, Sarah Pastorek to see if he/she has been accepted into the program.
In addition to the on-court experience VABA Summer Coaching Interns get, coaching interns will also "earn" on-court skills training via the "High School Summer Skills Academy." For every three (3) hours of on-court internship hours, VABA interns may also receive 1.5 hours of on-court skills training. This program is a wonderful opportunity to develop in all areas.
Commitment, Being a Role Model
VABA Coaches are expected to be role models on and off the court in our community. For a Summer Coaching Intern to be effective, he/she must be eager, on-time, hard-working, diligent and willing to go the extra mile. A positive attitude and an eager spirit to learn, listen and do whatever task necessary for the "VABA Team" is required.
