Brooklyn Women’s Rugby seeks Head Coach, to begin August 2016
Brooklyn Women’s Rugby is a talented, player-run team with members at all levels of experience. During our competitive 15s season (Aug 9-Nov), we compete in Division 1/2 playing teams in the tristate area. During our development season (spring and summer) we play both 15’s and 7’s against a variety of tri-state area teams with one travel weekend in the spring. We are hoping to find a coach who connects with our amazing group of women, shares our passion for rugby, and is looking to turn some superb talent into a dominating team.
Expectations and Responsibilities:
A coach would be expected to help plan and run two-hour practices, held usually on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Brooklyn, NY. During practice we aim to help players at all levels grow and develop as athletes, while continuously learning about new aspects of rugby. Our coach would collaborate with captains to design effective game plans and strategies.
A coach would also be responsible for attending and coaching at all games and tournaments, typically played on Saturdays (transportation provided by the team.)
We are looking for a coach who is willing to obtain, or has already obtained, a Level 200 coaching certification with USA Rugby. Previous experience as player, referee, and coach are also required. Any additional certifications are a plus.
Stipend to be provided. We also have access to coaching materials through SportPlan.
