Volunteer Session Coaches/Assistant Coaches for Junior Rowing Squad

This is a great opportunity to join Broxbourne Rowing Club’s volunteer coaching team and coach juniors from complete beginners to GB trialists. Broxbourne Rowing Club has a growing and enthusiastic junior squad (J13s to J18s) and its facilities include a 3km stretch of the beautiful River Lea, a well maintained boat fleet and purpose built gym for land training.

We are looking for individuals with a passion for rowing to join our team of Junior Coaches. You should enjoy working with teenagers and want to share your love of the sport with them. You will coach/support land and water training sessions following the training programme set by our head Junior Coach. Junior training sessions typically run weekend mornings and also early evenings during the week; as part of the volunteer Junior Coaching Team, it will be up to you how much or how little time you are able to offer as a volunteer.

Whilst no rowing or coaching experience is necessary as we will support your development, the following would be beneficial

  • Experience of working with Teenagers
  • Coaching Experience
  • Rowing/Sculling Experience
  • British Rowing Level 2 Rowing Coach certificate.

As a Broxbourne Volunteer Coach the club would be able to offer the following (in agreement with the Club Captain):

  • Club Coaching Attire (Waterproofs, etc)
  • Coach Development Opportunities
  • Free Saturday morning breakfast
  • Fuel Allowance – where applicable
  • Support toward British Rowing Qualifications.

All regular coaching positions require an Enhanced DBS check and two references to be carried out, alongside completion of the Safeguarding and Protecting Children course, and three British Rowing online training modules.
