Become a Coach

If you are interested in doing some coaching with the Club please speak with the coaches, we would love to have you on board!

Club coaches volunteer some of their time for free, normally about twenty sessions a year. When the coaching being delivered is over and above the expected commitment payment may be made on submission of a proposal to Committee and the Committee accepting that proposal.

  • The Club will cover the cost of the following:
  • Coach training Foundation and Group
  • BTF Membership annually
  • First Aid Training
  • Safeguarding training
  • Club coach kit (Hoody and T Shirt)

After the first year coaches have a Continuous Personal development Fund of £150 annually, rising to £250 after five years. This may be spent on courses, personal coaching, books, subscriptions, conferences etc.

We will work with individuals to agree the amount of time commitment/sessions that we expect coaches to fulfil for the Club to agree to pay for the coaching training.

Below are some general guidelines. If you are interested in pursuing a coaching qualification, please contact one of the current coaches or any of the Club committee and we can look at your specific circumstances.
