Now that you’ve spent a few months getting hyped about Vancouver Island’s latest sports team, it’s time to showcase some team spirit with this awesome part-time gig!

Pacific FC is hosting open tryouts to hire a team mascot, whose identity will be revealed later this month, for their inaugural season of the Canadian Premier League.

The successful candidate would perform as the team mascot year round starting April 8th, for 10-20 hours/week.

“Pacific FC is looking for someone passionate, motivated, and energetic to represent our team as our mascot,” reads the job posting.

“This person must be available for all home games plus community outreach events, throughout Vancouver Island. The ideal candidate is a positive team player that is very self-motivated, creative, outgoing and loves interacting with people in the community.”

Just show up

Mascot trials will be taking place at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27th at Upstairs Cabaret in Bastion Square.

Each participant will be judged on two main activities: a 45 second dance performance, (rehearsed or unrehearsed), and a short game of charades meant to test spontaneity.

Costumes and music will be available upon request, so all you have to bring is your confidence, positive attitude, and your grooviest moves!

Can’t make it to the open tryouts? Send out your résumé to Kadie Smith, ksmith@pacificfc.ca with subject line “Mascot” ASAP!
