Our staff will be knowledgeable, friendly, professional and commited to developing another generation of awesome people who play great baseball in our thriving East York and larger Toronto Community.
The instructors will all be elite AAA East York developed players, many on baseball scholarships in the states who continue to play and/or instruct at a high level. They will create a fun and positive learning environment and provide great instruction, feedback and repetition opportunities for each camper and clinic participant.
We aim to have a good balance of position specific knowledge amongst the staff with current and former pitchers, outfielders, middle and corner infielders and a catching instructor.
We are always seeking the best instructors. While we tend to retain most of our instructors because they are so good and like working in this environment, each year we hope to create new positions. This year we will be looking for staff specialized in leading and teaching 4-6 year olds for the last 4 weeks of August. Experience with this age and patience is important. As well, we tend to need additional staff over the last 2-3 weeks as some staff need to launch for University and College time.
All staff must begin the process of becoming a certified baseball instructor through the National Canadian Coaching Program (NCCP) by achieving their online initiation course for sport and for baseball before our training day. Those interested in instructing in the Fall, Winter and Spring clinics must continue to complete the required courses (i.e., Absolutes and one of pitching, catching, hitting, base running, outfielding or infielding).
Applications for Summer Camp Instructor positions will be available by the end of March and hiring wil be complete by the end of April. We are looking for those who can especially work the last 3 weeks of the summer. Experience and maturity will be very important.
Those interested in working at the camp should email Andrew at email@example.com to state their level of interest, highest level played, position expertise and weeks they are able to commit to working at the camp. Relevant reliable references (i.e., former coaches/teammates) will be required for new candidates.
Instructors-in-Training will all be minimum rep or select level knowledgeable 14-15 year old EY baseball players who are keen to work as part of a team to make each camper's experience awesome! They will support instructors in equipment organization, set up and clean up, as well as in the running of drills and other duties as assigned. Initiative, energy and a track record of working well with others are key characteristics we look for.
We will also be looking for ITs for the last 4 camp weeks to help the running of the On Deck Program for 4-6 year old campers. These ITs must be comfortable with engaging and creating fun with this age group while maintaining a safe environment.
ITs receive free hot catered lunch as well as community service hours towards completion of their high school diploma. References for future jobs are given upon request.
Hiring of ITs will be in May and June. Those interested in working at the camp should email Andrew at firstname.lastname@example.org to state their level of interest, highest level played, position expertise and weeks they are able to commit to working at the camp. Relevant reliable references (i.e., former coaches/teammates) will be required for those new to this camp position.
