GRP Intern Wanted for Summer '19

Last Updated: 21.Feb.2019

The Craftsbury Green Racing Project (GRP) is looking for a summer intern to aid and facilitate the coaching staff of the GRP and the GRP U23 sculling programs.

The Craftsbury Outdoor Center offers the endurance sports of rowing, running, Nordic skiing, and biathlon, with a specialty in sustainability. We are looking for a motivated, organized, and enthusiastic intern to work side-by-side with our GRP coaches this summer, 2019. Ideal for an experienced sculler, this position will help you expand your rowing knowledge and coaching skills as you serve a vibrant, competitive, and unique sculling community. To be clear, this is a coaching internship and not a training internship.

The team will attend the U23 and Senior Trials in West Windsor, NJ, in July as well as the ERA regatta in Montreal. Additionally, members of the team may attend the U23 World Championships in Sarasota, FL, the Senior World Championships in Linz, Austria, and Canadian Henley in St. Catherines, Ontario. While the coaching intern may not travel to all regattas, the intern will definitely head to U23/Senior Trials, the ERA regatta, and Canadian Henley.

The intern will function as direct support for Coaches Troy Howell, Grace Hollowell, and Steve Whelpley. As such, your duties will include assisting with filming, data gathering and management, timing, organizing travel, managing the welfare of the athletes, and coaching. Proficient spreadsheet skills are required, and sculling experience is preferred.

If you want to further your understanding of sculling, better your coaching, and have a desire to work with our community, a summer internship at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center in the one of a kind Northeast Kingdom of Vermont might be the right fit for you!

The internship will provide room, board, & travel and runs from June 1 – August 11, 2019. Interns are expected to have current passports to support international travel as needed.
