Required January to March 2020

We are seeking to appoint an experienced and inspirational Netball Coach for a minimum of 3 afternoons each week from January 2020 for the Lent school term. Saturday availability is essential for weekend fixtures. The rate of pay is £12.36 per hour plus co-curricular payment for weekend fixtures. In addition, lunch is provided free of charge, and there may be scope for additional hours due to other school activities. 

This role provides an opportunity to help shape the principles of play through the school from U8 to our 1st XI, and we are looking to someone with the ambition to do so. There will be support on Games afternoons from our full and part time staff along with members of the common room. Support is provided in strength and conditioning in our new gym and there is analysis support as part of our intern work with Cardiff Metropolitan University. Training sessions and Saturday home fixtures take place on our school netball courts. A number of our girls achieve representative honours and as well as celebrating their success, we want to aim to celebrate and develop a lifelong love of the sport.

It will suit someone who enjoys coaching and working with children and is able to establish warm, professional and mutually respectful relationships with them, and who can be an effective member of a highly committed team of staff.
