Looking for a coach for the Queen's men's side 17/18 - with option to extend for the right candidate.

The side had a fantastic VIIIs campaign with M1 and M2 both winning blades and an M3 qualifying and bumping on the last day. Around 20 returners expected over the course of the coming year (some will be at OULRC till Trinity). Our aim for the next year would be to push M1 towards Eights Div 1 (currently 5th in Div 2) and into Torpids Div 2 (currently 3rd in Div 3). M2 is a rowing on boat for Torpids and currently 6th in Div 5 in Eights.

Focus would be on the first two boats with some input into any lower boats although definitely room for more involvement. The returning squad will have some good depth and commitment to continue the successes of this year - many of this years rowers were novices in MT so definitely room for improvement and further successes.

Details:

- Overall responsibility for the senior training programme - focus on M1 and M2 past Michaelmas but with input to lower boat plans
- Selecting crews for Torpids and Eights as well as IWLs and external regattas

- Train and select crews for Torpids

TT:
