The majority of Upower coaches are volunteers. We owe our success to the generosity, skill sets and enthusiasm of those who give their time to teach our classes. Whether you are an experienced athletic instructor or a fitness fan who enjoys working with teens, come join our team. Coaching for Upower is fun, active and very rewarding.

 
Role Descriptions
Coaches set the tone for a positive, structured and productive environment. We have lead and assistant coaches who run classes together. Lead coaches provide the overall instruction, teach skills and ensure teens have correct form. Assistant coaches support lead coaches, offer encouragement and help our teens get through the workouts.

All coaches advocate the importance of developing and maintaining healthier habits. Great Upower coaches are those who wish to teach and impact lives, laugh and have fun!

 
Qualifications
Lead coaches are highly trained and experienced working with teens. Many have certifications in different types of athletics though it’s not required. Assistant coaches have fitness backgrounds and enjoy working with teens.

All coaches understand the need to be flexible and that they serve as mentors. All are required to complete our background check. Lead coaches must be certified in First Aid/CPR/AED. For assistant coaches, this certification is ideal but not required.

 
Time Commitment
Classes are typically a 1.5-hour time commitment and take place on weekdays, after school or during the day. You decide how much you’d like to coach and we come up with a schedule that works with your availability and location.
