Coaching Opportunities

Although we do not yet know what the pandemic has in store for us this spring and what Meridian spring sports will look like this year, we want to make every effort to offer our spring sports communities a season that is as close as possible to "normal." We are currently seeking Soccer coaches, Spring Cross Country (or Spring Running) coaches, and a Varsity Baseball coach for Spring 2021:
 
Soccer Coaches - Middle School and High School
Meridian Athletics is currently in search of two head coaches: one for a co-ed high school soccer team and one for a co-ed middle school soccer team. Each position would include a stipend should the coach's team be formed, which will be determined by registration. Availability Wednesday early afternoons is ideal (2 pm-4 pm), as that is often when Meridian can get access to fields. Other weekday afternoons and evenings and Saturday availability is helpful, as games can be any weekday evening and on Saturdays. Middle school typically practices two afternoons a week, and high school usually practices three. We anticipate the season will start the week of January 25th and could extend into the first week of April, with tryouts possibly the afternoon of January 20th. (All dates are subject to change at this very early stage of planning.)
 
Baseball Coach - Varsity
Meridian Athletics is currently in search of one head coach for our Varsity Baseball team. The position includes a stipend should the team be formed, which will be determined by registration. Availability Wednesday early afternoons is ideal (2 pm-4 pm), as that is often when Meridian can get access to a field. Other weekday afternoons and evenings and Saturday availability is helpful, as games can be any weekday evening and on Saturdays. Varsity Baseball usually practices three times a week. We anticipate the season will start the week of March 1st and could extend into the first week of May, with tryouts possibly the afternoon of February 24th. (All dates are subject to change at this very early stage of planning.)
 
Spring Cross Country / Spring Running Coaches
Meridian Athletics is currently in search of two head coaches: one for a co-ed high school Cross Country team and one for a co-ed middle school Cross Country team or a Spring Running group. Each position would include a stipend should the coach's team be formed, which will be determined based on the league's decision, the situation with the pandemic at the time and registration. Availability Wednesday early afternoons is ideal (2 pm-4 pm), as that is often when Meridian student athletes are available to train. Other weekday mornings, afternoons, and evenings and Saturday availability is helpful, as the league's Regional and State meets are typically on Saturdays (should the league offer Spring Cross Country and Meridian decide to participate). No dates have been determined for the season yet, but we anticipate that the season could start as early as late January and continue as late as mid April. (All dates are subject to change at this very early stage of planning.)
