STAGING Satellite Coach - South West - British Rowing

Satellite Coach – South West

We are looking for an ambitious coach who can work as part of a team to successfully develop rowers in the South West.

The Role

The GB Rowing Team’s aim is to create an Olympic Pathway that is open, accessible and clear, so that any individual who has the potential to row for Great Britain can achieve their ambitions. The Satellite Coach post-holders will play a key role within that Pathway, supporting the Performance Development Coaches in their region to identify, recruit, and develop new athletes with future Olympic potential who might not otherwise enter the sport of rowing or excel within a traditional ‘mainstream’ rowing pathway. In particular the post-holder will act as the link between the Regional GB Performance Development Academy, and the wider region, supporting identified ‘satellite’ athletes and their coaches in clubs, supporting regional coach development, and engaging with Youth Rowing Outreach programmes to create opportunities for talent to be developed from groups who wouldn’t otherwise engage in the sport of rowing.

About you

We are looking for ambitious coaches who can work as part of a team to successfully develop rowers progressively following a long-term development model. You should have the experience and personal qualities to enable you to work within a high-performance rowing environment, and aspire to work with clubs and coaches to create a hub of activity which enables individuals, who may not otherwise have the opportunity, to reach the very top of the sport.
