Background: The Lillooet Rowing Club, founded in 2017, is a newly formed not-for-profit sports organization based out of beautiful Lillooet, B.C. Comprised of a volunteer board of directors, paid and volunteer coaches, the LRC currently provides Learn to Row (LTR) and recreational programs to members of the community. In the immediate future, the LRC will be looking to expand its programs being offered to include a junior recreational and competitive program, in partnership with Lillooet Secondary School.

You will provide instruction to LTR programs, recreational programs, and help develop and coach local high school students as part of their curriculum. You will be responsible for upholding a safe practice environment while facilitating technical improvements in rowers.
