    About this opportunity: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.
