Reporting to the Head Coach, the volunteer coach will be responsible for delivering coaching sessions to the players at the club. Typically volunteers will be involved in;
- Assisting to provide quality football coaching sessions for children - Preparing for Matches - Setting up and packing down sports equipment - Maintaining our Health and Safety standards
The volunteer coach will also need to be available to assist on a match day which will be either Saturday or Sunday depending on age groups.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone who is interested in football and has a keen desire to develop players from a variety of backgrounds and who have varying ability. The successful coach will be rewarded for their commitment to the club via support through coach education which will result in a nationally recognised certification.
No details were provided about the training made available to volunteers. Please contact us to find out more.
Out of pocket expenses paid?
The biggest attribute we are looking for as an organisation in the first instance is enthusiasm followed by commitment and organisation skills. Ideally the person will have an interest in football and player development both from a footballing and holistic point of view. Experience in coaching would be beneficial but not overly necessary as full support will be given to the volunteer.
Restrictions on who can volunteer
No restrictions were specified.
Interview; PVG membership required; Trial Period
No, not for this opportunity.
The opportunity is primarily based in the Kirkcaldy area, however some travel to away fixtures would be required. Invariably the coach would be transported to the match day event, although having their own transport would be beneficial but not essential.
This opportunity is compatible with the Saltire Awards for volunteers aged 12-25.
