Mount Baker looking for coaches

Local high school puts out the call for anyone wishing to get involved with football or volleyball teams.

The athletic department at Mount Baker Secondary School is looking for some coaches to lead a few athletic teams when the next school year begins in September.

The most pressing need is the opening for a football coach, as current head coach Steve Lightfoot is stepping away. Without a head coach, the program is in danger of folding, according to athletic director Dan Loewen.

Any interested candidates should have some playing and coaching experience at the high school level, with the knowledge to teach the fundamentals of the game.

The team practices every day of the week and plays 10 games in the Interior AA league—six on the road and four at home.

In addition to the football program, Mount Baker is also looking for coaches for both the boys and girls junior volleyball teams.

Applicants should be able to teach fundamentals and integrate skills in to system play.

Anyone interested in either coaching positions can contact Loewen at 250-426-5241 ext. 646.
