As an outside contractor, we anticipate the Executive Director would be paid $200 per week from date of hire to Aug. 31, 2021. This compensation is partly based on Rugby Arizona’s expectations for registered players; if more tackle players are registered with Rugby Arizona than expected, additional compensation may be available to the Executive Director. The position could potentially entail additional opportunities for commission/bonus-like features based on rugby camps, player registrations, and/or sponsorships, to be discussed and negotiated as desired. The position does not come with any benefits, and the contractor is responsible to report any income to the IRS for taxes. Note that Rugby Arizona reserves the right to review, amend, and update this estimated compensation structure at any time.
Mentoring will be provided to the Executive Director to train the candidate on the policies and procedures of Rugby Arizona. Evaluations will be given on an as-needed basis to assess performance and adjust training.
