EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES  

WE NEED MORE GREAT INSTRUCTORS!

Shields Gymnastics was started in Hillsborough, NJ, in 1981 by Mr. Shields. Since then, we’ve grown and moved to a beautiful state-of-the-art facility in Flemington. In that time, we’ve managed to hire some fantastic instructors.

 

We’re now hoping to add a few more great people to the team.

 

WHAT CAN I EXPECT TO DO AS A GYMNASTICS INSTRUCTOR AT SHIELDS?

Well for starters, have FUN! As an instructor, you will take the time to teach children of all ages good fundamental gymnastics—starting with the easiest skills and progressing to more advanced techniques. Our programs and instructors are the best in the area, but we never forget that fun is number one!

 

All instructors participate in our own continuous-education program that promotes safe teaching principles in a fun,

non-competitive environment.

 

WHAT’S YOUR GYMNASTICS SCHOOL LIKE?

Our school consists of an 18,000-square-foot gym featuring top-of-the-line A.A.I. equipment. We have in-ground trampolines, a tumble track and foam pit, as well as spring-loaded balance beams, a vaulting table and uneven parallel bars. This equipment makes it easier to teach even the most difficult gymnastics skills.

 

WHAT KIND OF EXPERIENCE IS NEEDED?

A background in gymnastics and cheerleading is helpful. Working with children, whether through volunteering or babysitting, is a big plus. Keep in mind that this is a very active, hands-on job; be prepared to get a great workout while you teach!

 

WHAT ARE THE HOURS?

We offer very flexible, part-time hours. Classes run from 9am to 9pm Monday-Friday and Saturdays from 9am-12 noon. The flexible hours make it an ideal job for high school & college students or the ex-gymnast or cheerleader who wants to share his or her love of the sport. This is a year-round job; we do not offer summer-only positions.
