: HS Coaches take a lot of time and energy to run a program and I'm wondering what the money situation is.
: My public district pays a teacher (who is the coach) 7% on top of their salary. So if the teacher is at $60k then they get an additional $4200 to coach. A walk-on coach, who isn't a teacher, is given approximately $2800.
: My really question is - Is that it? Or, is there more to it?
: For example, teams have summer programs that can run anywhere from $200-700 a player - get 75 players trying out and in summer program and suddenly there's some money - Do HS Coaches get paid via this pot? Or?
I ran the booster club for a high school team, so I've been the guy authorizing checks for coaches. Some of the numbers given above are pretty accurate. The head coach gets his stipend from the district. In our case, the assistants and the lower division coaches get paid from booster club fundraising to the tune of $1,200 to - $2,100 per season (regular season and summer). Additionally, one assistant runs the optional spring and summer programs as club teams, as well as 7th and 8th grade feeder programs. When things are clicking, he probably is able to pull down another $20k annually from this.
Sure there are the private school coaches who are pulling down six figures. But in general, they are definitely not doing it for the money.
