St. Anne’s-Belfield, a PS-12 school serving 850+ students in Charlottesville, Virginia, is seeking a director of athletics to oversee its thriving sports and physical activity programs. Reporting to the Head of School and leading seven departmental team members plus coaches, the athletics director will join a longstanding program that believes athletic activity is vital to whole-child development, in which all students participate in physical activity or team play. Building off a strong competitive legacy, this person will play a pivotal role in creating a program that is transformational for girls and boys of all ages and inclination — those who desire to play at the DI collegiate or professional level, and those who participate for the physical and mental benefits that sports offer.
A successful candidate will have: A commitment to the development and recruitment of student-athletes for mission-driven organizations, ideally in K12 school environments; experience navigating the DI and DIII recruitment process for multiple sports, demonstrated success in managing an athletics program with a minimum of five years at the senior level; a high level of integrity, drive, vision, communication, and collaboration skills; experience providing media interviews and building trust-based relationships with colleagues and stakeholders; strong commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion; a bachelor’s degree (master’s preferred). St. Anne’s-Belfield is an equal opportunity employer and is seeking a diverse pool of candidates.
St. Anne’s-Belfield has engaged The Finney Search Group to lead the search for our next director of athletics. All interested candidates are encouraged to send a resume, cover letter, and 3 professional references to: www.thefinneysearchgroup.com/stab-ad-application. Applications sent directly to the School will not be considered
