Our Key Stage One Sports Coaches are responsible for getting 5 – 8 year olds active as part of our Multi-Active programme. You will lead and inspire a group of up to 8 children, delivering high energy, fun and inclusive sessions that ensure every child is engaged, making progress regardless of their ability.
Activities can include anything from coaching football, tennis and badminton, to leading team building games. Each session typically (depending on age) lasts between 30 – 60 minutes long. Child safety is our number one priority and coaches need to ensure that the welfare of children is paramount at all times, supervising children during their lunch breaks, participating in swimming sessions, overseeing safe use of equipment and promptly recording any incidents.
Each camp will have a team of Sports Coaches, so you’ll need to be able to work proactively and collaboratively with your peers. You’ll need to maintain professional feedback on a child’s progress throughout camp/
Our coaches (we call them Red Tops) are not expected to stand on the side lines, but to actively participate in delivery showcasing skills, demonstrating good practice and most importantly… have fun!
Hours can vary each day in line with child numbers and needs of our members but we’re looking for coaches to be fully available between 8am – 6pm, Monday to Friday during the school holidays. We’re looking for coaches to be available for the full duration of the shorter seasons, and in the summer (our busiest season) for a minimum of 3 consecutive weeks.
