Applicants may be contacted by a member of CFC's selection committee or their athletic department for a phone interview. Official invitations for Summer 2019 spots will be sent by email in late February. This application asks for information about you, the camp dates you are available for, your preferred sports and subjects to teach, as well as 6 essay questions about your interest in Coach for College and experience. The following application will take a minimum of 20 minutes to complete, excluding the essay questions, which require some prior reflection. Feel free to browse through the form, but when beginning to fill the application out, it must be completed in one session. If you exit the application before completing it, none of your answers will be saved and you must begin again. If you own a valid passport, you will need to email a digital copy for your application to be complete, so please ensure you have that ready. It is not necessary to own a valid passport to apply, though should you be accepted, you will need to apply for one without delay, using the expedited process.
If you have any questions about the program or the application process, please do not hesitate to contact Seth Napier at email@example.com.
Dates refer to the day you would leave the US, and the date you would most likely land on the way back.
Bear in mind that for basketball, tennis and baseball (we teach a simplified, wiffle ball version), the children will be at a very beginning level. The children usually are familiar with volleyball and soccer, though the majority of them have not played either one extensively or in an organized way.
The purpose of this and the following academic section is to match you best with what you are able to teach. The better we understand your experience and ability to teach and coach each sport and subject, the better we can ensure that the teaching assignments for each camp are balanced and fit the participants' skill sets.
Since this part of the application does not enter into the selection process itself, it is not necessary to try to impress here. Giving a good amount of detail and description here DOES however help us a lot AFTER selection, when deciding whether you or one of your teammates in the camp would best be able to teach a certain sport.
Again, our focus here is not on selection, rather in trying to assign each chosen coach to a subject that they are able to teach, while covering all subjects in a given camp.
NOTE: You will be given lesson plans to aid you in teaching each class of the academic subject you are selected to teach, so you mainly need to be able to follow and understand a lesson plan for that subject designed for Vietnamese 6th, 7th, 8th, or 9th graders.
Remember that this section is not used until after selection, to ensure that all our coaches are assigned to teach a subject they are able to. There is no need therefore to feel you should impress. We are most interested in getting an objective feel for if you or one of the other coaches in your camp would be best suited to teach Subject A, and who would fit best in Subject B, etc. So the more descriptive the information you give us, the more accurate we can be.
