Hi All! Kennesaw State University is looking for someone to teach a one credit Beginning Racquetball course on T/Th from 8:30-9:15pm this fall. The class has 16 students, and is taught on three courts in our incredible student rec center. It runs for 10 weeks (20 classes), but you get to choose which 20 days to go out of the 16-week semester, so there is a bit of flexibility in the schedule. The ideal candidate would have a BA or higher in a sport or teaching-related field (exercise science, sport management, physical education, education, etc.). Please email Kim Fletcher if you’re interested in getting more details! Thanks!
