Employment with KIFAC Denver Kickball League
Thank you for your interest in Denver Kickball Employment with KIFAC Social Sports. We are currently looking to fill the following position(s):
LEAGUE MANAGER – Kickball and other outdoor sports
This is an amazingly fun position providing leadership to the players of KIFAC‘s recreational kickball leagues. The position has been developed so that League Managers enjoy their time in the park and thus provide the fun experience our customers have come to expect.
Though this is a fun job, there are still important duties and responsibilities. Some of these are mentioned below along with some required qualifications. If, after reading through this information, you believe your skills and your qualifications match what is needed, please click the [Employment Application Form] button to continue.
Requirements and qualifications
Leagues can begin as early as 6:00pm and as late as 7:30pm in the evening. Some leagues occur on weekends. The only shifts available are during these times. Your shift for most leagues will begin approximately one hour before your league begins. Typical shifts will last from three to four hours.
You will manage the same league(s) every week of a 7- to 9-game season. For scheduling purposes, you will be committing to the same time each week of the season. KIFAC leagues can potentially play any day of the week. Though you will be scheduled for shifts based on your availability, the highest priority will always be given to League Managers who are available on Fridays. If you cannot work Fridays, the likelihood of being assigned any leagues diminishes greatly.
You will be expected to learn the process quickly during training. Beyond training, you will have little supervision, and you will be counted on to manage your leagues correctly.
Though they are used infrequently, you must possess a mobile phone in case communications are needed, for example, to contact the league office or to call emergency services. You should also be able to connect to Google Calendar through your phone or any other device to access the staff schedule.
You should have your own reliable vehicle. You will be hauling your own set of equipment to your league’s fields for each of your shifts. You should be able to load and to unload your vehicle, meaning that you should be able to lift and carry at least fifty pounds. You also should be able to bend over frequently while setting up and tearing down your fields.
This is an active job; you will need to be able to stay on your feet for the entirety of your shift of three to four hours.
As KIFAC’s contact person at the fields, you must know, inside and out, all league rules, which will be provided for you during training. (They can also be found at https://kifac.org/kickball-league-rules/.)
You will be asked other KIFAC-related questions. You should be able to answer those questions or know how to find the answers to those questions, always being very friendly and outgoing. The ability to provide good customer service is paramount in importance.
To begin games on time, you will need to be able to make quick decisions and to provide leadership to the players.
Finally, for now, you should feel comfortable speaking in front of a group of as many 100 people, and you should be able to convey information in an efficient and effective manner.
Yes, even though this is the most awesome part-time job ever, you get paid! Overall compensation for kickball League Managers is approximately $20/hour in a base-plus-bonus program. (This will get explained further during training.) The bonus is contingent on your getting all your leagues started and completed as scheduled.
The next steps
If you are still interested in being a KIFAC League Manager, the next step is to apply by clicking the [Employment Application Form] button below. Fill it out completely, and we will contact with you within 48 hours.
From there, you will attend two paid training sessions. One session will be at our office, learning the ins and outs of being a League Manager. There will be several dates over the next month from which to choose for this training session. The second session will be at the fields, putting into practice the set-up processes that you should have learned. You will again have a choice of dates for attending this session. Finally, there will be an on-the-job training session where you will be an acting League Manager, doing all the tasks a League Manager does. Depending on the training schedule you choose, this on-the-job training should take place in late April or early May. Then, assuming we all agree that you are a good fit, you will be an official KIFAC League Manager, ready for action no later than when the Summer season begins the first week of June.
