SSWSC Seeks New Athletic Director
Steamboat Springs, CO – The Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club (SSWSC) is seeking an experienced, sports minded individual with a strong athletic background in winter sports to fill the position of Athletic Director. In October 2018, the SSWSC announced leadership changes with Associate Executive Director Sarah Floyd promoted to Executive Director, and Athletic Director Jon Nolting promoted to Associate Executive Director. The position of Athletic Director remained unfilled for the 2018-19 winter season as the leadership transition took place.
As Executive Director and Associate Executive Director, Floyd and Nolting continue to work on club cohesion and culture, strategic priorities in preparation for future capital projects, as well as continuing to enhance community partnerships. With the end of the winter competitive season, the club is ready to find the right individual to join the team as Athletic Director, overseeing the club’s diverse winter and summer athletic programs.
The new Athletic Director will be responsible for maintaining an environment where coaches positively challenge SSWSC athletes to develop to their highest potential as athletes and individuals. The vision of the SSWSC to be the best at creating champions, on and off the mountain, drives the need for a director who values both performance excellence as well as the development of character, leadership, teamwork, integrity and respect.
“The right individual will bring professional experience working with youth in ski and snowboard sports, understanding the physical, mental, social and emotional aspects of athletic training. They will also have built programs and managed projects,” said Nolting. “We’re looking for someone who will continue to support the relationships between coaches, athletes, parents, and our community partners, while delivering world-class training. This individual will guide our coaches in their pursuit to help athletes reach their goals, and find fulfillment through their experiences at the SSWSC.”
Organization and strong management skills are important assets when it comes to ensuring that all disciplines can work together and share the strength center, slopes and training facilities at the historic Howelsen Hill and the Steamboat Ski Resort. These venues and the surrounding community have been the training ground for 95 Olympians with 165 Olympic appearances.
“We are excited to add an individual to our strong athletic staff, continuing the excellent work Jon Nolting has done in recent years to solidify the club’s training and programming in sport excellence at all levels: locally, nationally, and on the world platform,” said Executive Director Sarah Floyd.
