About our coaches

While our Club Sports are all student run organizations, oftentimes they employ a coach whose expertise in skill development, strategy, and guidance are valuable assets to the club's success on the smallest and largest stages. Our coaches come from all walks of life but all have great backgrounds in sports and are dedicated to helping are athletes succeed and grow in their athletic and academic pursuits. All of our coaches meet the certifications of the sports national governing bodies as well as meeting other requirements set forth by the University. All coaches are also committed to the safety and well being of our students and hold this as their utmost priority.

Are coaches paid?

Many of our club coaches are compensated for their efforts but as club's operate on a limited budget the compensation is not substantial and none of our coaches are full time. As club budgets are meager compared to Varsity counterparts many coaches volunteer their time and services for less than market value

What is the philosophy of coaching at UVM

While coaches inevitably have different styles, all coaches follow the student development model emphasized by the University. This means that coaches facilitate the growth of our students and do not entirely "run the show". Students hold important leadership roles within the organization and learn the administrative pieces and assist with key decisions guiding the organization. In this way coaches help students prepare for the real world they will encounter after UVM

How do I get involved in coaching at UVM

If you have a passion for a sport and are interested in coaching at the collegiate level you are strongly encouraged to look into coaching Club sports at UVM. By contacting the club or the Club Sports Coordinator (llifschu@uvm.edu) you can learn more about the club and if your skill set and experience is suited for the organization. A key ingredient is acquiring certification from the sports governing body. If you do not already have it, the Club sports department can assist you in acquiring it. It is expected that prospective coaches have prior experience and are excited about working in a partnership with student leaders.
