You guys are lucky! Out here high schools don't have S+C programs let alone dedicated coaches.

Last year I went to the national conference for S+C coaches in Australia and when they announced their new "professional levels" scheme and expected pay rates for each level I almost cried.

Anyhooooo I pulled myself off the floor and went back to running my own stuff to make money and I volunteer a few hours a week coaching high school kids in our Olympic lifting gym.

I make a lot doing it. That is my actual job title. But, I have advanced degrees in history and religious education which makes me qualifed to teach the O lifts.

Seriously, HS pays better than the next level in 'most' cases.

Dan also lives off of his residuals from inventing the internet.
He's right about the HS sometimes paying more, especially if it is coupled with a teaching job. My district now features the highest pay scale in OC and only LA pays more around here.

Most of our high schools use S&C coaches for football only.
