Summary

Coaching opportunity at our Wheelchair Rugby Club in Wymondham! Experience preferred, not essential. Full training provided. Join us in empowering athletes!

Detailed description

Attention Coaches! Whether you're a seasoned pro seeking a new challenge, looking to make a coaching comeback, or a prospective coach with a sporting background, our Wheelchair Rugby team in Wymondham invites you to join our dynamic coaching family. Training takes place every Saturday from 11:45 to 14:15 at the Wymondham Leisure Centre.


We're not fixated on prior coaching experience - if you're passionate about fast-paced indoor sports and eager to contribute to a team's progress, this may be the perfect role for you.


Here's who we're looking for:


- Enthusiastic Team Player:

If you have a genuine passion for team sports and the well-being of individuals, you're exactly the kind of person we want.


- Communication Maestro:

Strong, varied communication and listening skills are key. We value effective and open communication on and off the field.


- Patient, Sensitive, and Supportive Nature:

Our ideal candidate possesses the patience to guide players, sensitivity to individual needs, and a supportive nature that fosters a positive team environment.


- Organizational Wizard:

As a good organizer willing to 'get stuck in,' you'll play a crucial role in the planning and execution of our training sessions.


Responsibilities include:


- Setting Achievable Goals:

Collaboratively establish goals that motivate and challenge our players.


- Planning, Reviewing & Progressing Coaching Sessions:

Contribute to the strategic development of our team through thoughtful planning, regular review, and continuous progression of coaching sessions.


- Delivering Effective Weekly Training Sessions:

Your expertise will help elevate our players' skills and overall performance.


- Inspiring Confidence & Motivation:

Be the mentor that inspires confidence and motivation in our players.


In return for your dedication, you'll become an integral part of a team that achieved Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby WR5'S Championship in 2019, actively participates in the Midland Development League with notable teams like Leicester Tigers, Northampton Saints, and Coventry Stampede. In 2023, we returned to WR5'S in League 2, concluding the season in 2nd place on the table.


Our current roster comprises 13 players, including 4 new additions last year. As a coach, you'll receive benefits such as free coaching webinars, the opportunity to train up to GBWR Level 2 in Coaching Wheelchair Rugby, ongoing full support, and the chance to engage with an enthusiastic team that competes across the UK.


If you're the coach we're looking for, don't hesitate to get in touch! We look forward to meeting you, sharing insights, and exploring how your coaching expertise can contribute to the success and growth of our Wheelchair Rugby team. Contact us today, and let's embark on this exciting coaching journey together!

About Norfolk Knights Wheelchair Rugby Club

Norfolk Knights are a Wheelchair Rugby Club (est. 2016) with the aim of bringing this exciting Wheelchair Sport to Norfolk.

In forming this club we have tried to take account of some of the key barriers to participation, and actively reduce or remove them, in order to build and promote an inviting club environment:

We’re creating the opportunity
We’re providing the key equipment
We’re selecting accessible locations/venues
We’re focussed on minimising member costs

First and foremost we are focussed on building a social team for disabled players of all genders. We also encourage able-bodied volunteers to join us to become assistants, chair mechanics, coaches, referees and more.

We are open to anyone from the age of 18 interested in learning more about the game.

For those interested in playing competitive matches, we field a team in the GBWR WR5s tournament which is usually played over the summer months and a development league played over the cooler months. As the sport grows new tournaments are being introduced for those who want to compete more.
