Idaho RTC/ODP Staff Application
Idaho Timbers-Thorns Training Center/ODP Staff
Coaches who apply to be on staff are expected to attend all assigned sessions, and to communicate with their RTC Director and/or State Technical Director when they are unavailable. By submitting an application you are committing to make all reasonable attempts to comply. Coaches will need to miss a training from time to time, and that is acceptable, but staff should communicate early and clearly on any conflicts.

USSF Coaching License ("B" or higher typically required for ODP position, "D" or higher for Training Center Staff)
What size do you wear for T-shirts and polos (please answer in men's sizes)?

What is your desired position? RTC staff will be made up of coaches in each of the RTC areas who will staff the Sunday trainings. For ODP, there will be 1 head coach for each ODP team who will be responsible for recruiting, evaluating, and coaching that group. Coach must commit to be in Boise Oct. 27 (tryouts) and Nov. 8-10 (Small States Friendlies), and in Phoenix Jan. 2-6. Same dates for ODP GK Head Coach. Cost for travel will be a consideration for head coach assignments, but only marginally.
Training Centers are tentatively planned for the following areas: CDA, IF, Twin Falls, and Boise.
ODP Head Coach (10 spots)
ODP GK Head Coach (2 spots)
RTC Director (1 spot per DTC)
RTC GK Coach (multiple)
RTC Staff (30+ spots)
Gender you prefer to coach:
What teams will you be coaching for your club/school during the upcoming year (gender and age)?
RTC pay is per session, with the rate dependent on how many sessions you attend. If a coach attends 50% or less of the sessions in a season (Fall or Spring) they will be paid $60 per session, while a coach who attends more than 50% sessions will be paid $75 per session.
One of the largest problems with ODP is the expense on the players. A large portion of that is coaching. Many coaches are willing to work as a volunteer to either fund scholarships in general or to help fund a specific player (your pay would be applied to a player's invoice account). This is highly encouraged, but certainly not required.
Would you like to:
Receive payment if I run the session
Not receive payment and apply it to the general ODP Scholarship fund
Not receive payment and apply it to a specific player to be named below or at a later time
