PLEASE DO NOT send a formatted cover letter that you sent to 9,437 Programs but just changed the name on top.  Please READ THIS and explain to us why you are going to make our Program Better.  Put something Creative in Your Subject line other than “Coaching Opportunity” or “Youth Basketball Coach” (direct from posting).  We are looking to hire a Creative Mind.

We prefer a younger coach who preferably is still a very good player himself.  Because of the language barrier, demonstrations are important.  We need Players who can properly demonstrate the skills we are teaching.  We need our coach to be High Energy all of the time.  We need our Coach to LEAD our players and our Chinese Coaches while promoting an environment where everyone feels confident to contribute their voice to practices.
