SBJSA is seeking motivated, well rounded, team players to instruct and mentor the next generation of sailors. Candidates must have a strong passion for sailing, teaching, and working with all ages - especially ages 8-18.

Our annual staff at Sodus Bay Junior Sailing Association is comprised of 10-13 paid positions and 2-4 unpaid training positions (CITs). Other than our Program Director, all summer positions involve a seasonal duration between approximately the 3rd week of June through the middle of August. We also hire part-time instructors to teach our fall sailing programs on the weekends.

Our instructors are paid by the hour. Pay rates are competitive and largely based on an applicant’s experience, credentials, and interview. We employ a diverse mix of young men and women for all positions. Although exceptions are sometimes made, our general policy is that a person seeking employment at SBJSA must reach age 17 by June 15th of the year they begin employment as a paid staff member with us. Please also note that employment at SBJSA is on an at will basis.

 

Our Counselors-in-training (CITs) go through a robust CIT Training plan led by experienced instructors.

Our entire staff works as a team to provide an enriched learning experience for all program attendees at SBJSA. They and the work they do every year are the primary reason why kids and families return for multiple years and multiple generations to be a part of the SBJSA family.

We invite you to be a part of our team, and we look forward to interviewing you for a dynamic experience here on Sodus Bay. See the links for our expectations, application process as well as requirements.
