Coach required

14th August 2017

Cygnet Rowing Club is looking to recruit a head coach for the 2017-18 season.

The head coach will have responsibility for devising the club's training plan to include comprehensive land and water sessions, and coaching weekend outings for the main squad of 24-30 athletes. In collaboration with the club captain, to select crews for races and training outings.

Outing windows are from 7am - 1pm Saturdays and Sundays; the athletes are encouraged to undertake double sessions where possible, and up to 3 weeknight land training sessions.

Currently, the majority of the squad are at novice & intermediate 3 level and over 80% have learned to row at the club. In 2016-17, the Novice "A" 4+ achieved 3 wins after a couple of early losses in finals, and the Novice "B" 4+ made a couple of finals and pushed hard only to lose out at the last. The club also enjoyed a couple of 1x wins and is looking to develop the sculling abilities of the squad members.

Ambitions for the 2017-18 season are to develop the top end of the squad through IM2/IM1 level and to get an 8+ to Henley.

'In 2016-17, the Novice "A" 4+ achieved 3 wins after a couple of early losses in finals.' Um, actually we won our first event, and then our second, and finished the season three out of four at IM2... Just saying, like.
