Job Description

Make a positive difference on America's youth by coaching youth sports after-school programs! No previous coaching experience required - we train all coaches.


Do you love working with youth, teaching sports and wellness, and designing your own curriculums? As a Youth Sports Coach with ANTS (America's Next Talented Stars), you'll lead your own weekly after school program at one of our Bay Area partner elementary schools or at a local park. If interested and your schedule permits, you may coach different sports multiple days of the week (we offer programs in flag football, tennis, basketball, yoga, soccer, and more). Small group programs will begin in January 2021 and last through spring, right in time for summer camps! Your time commitment is 1-8 hrs per week, depending on how many programs you coach. All coaches will be required to wear masks at all times and follow our COVID-19 safety protocols. We provide all necessary training, equipment, and support. Being an ANTS Coach is a great way to get involved with youth and serve the community. Come join our team!

To Apply: Please complete our online application here: Responsibilities

  • Manage a small group sports class of 4-8 students
  • Understand and strictly follow all COVID-19 safety protocols (including wearing a mask at all times while coaching)
  • Attend an orientation training in person and (if applicable) pick up sports equipment from ANTS
  • Teach the FUNdamentals of sports through a cohesive and game-filled lesson plan
  • Interact positively with parents, teachers, and school staff
  • Ensure a safe and reliable program by conducting roll call and signing in/out students before and after class
  • Set up before and clean up after your program
  • Transport all equipment to/from class each week (head coach only)


Our partner schools are located across Oakland, San Francisco, Walnut Creek and Orinda. Because schools are distance learning only currently, we'll be running classes at local community parks and tennis courts.


Classes generally take place once/week on the same day each week. Classes take places between the hours of 2pm - 4:30pm, so you must be available to coach in the afternoons on your program day. Classes last for one hour. Some of our programs offer back-to-back classes for different age groups. To learn about our specific program options, please fill out the application form linked at the top!


  • Transportation: Coaches must have reliable transportation to get to their various coaching sites. You may be required to bring equipment to & from class so a vehicle is very helpful.
  • Responsible & professional: Arrive on time to each practice and keep accurate attendance. Interact with parents and school staff positively.
  • Communication: Have strong communication skills. It is required for coaches to communicate with ANTS, parents, and site staff through email and phone.
  • Enthusiastic & fun: ANTS coaches should always be positive role models for our students. We expect that you share our deep beliefs in the larger themes we are promoting: sportsmanship, wellness, and respect. Help make ANTS Sports the highlight of our blossoming athletes' day!
  • Patience: Be a patient person who understands young children & the need to develop at their own pace.
  • Experience: Experience as a player or coach (at least 2 years) is highly preferred, though not necessarily required.
  • Background check: A successful candidate must pass a Federal & State Background Check and/or FBI Fingerprinting (Livescan) and test negative for TB test (within the last 4 year).

Job Type: Part-timeSalary: $25.00 to $35.00 /hour
