St Peter’s College Women’s Boat Club is looking for a new head coach for the rowing season 2017/ 2018.

SPCWBC has had a successful year performing well in Torpids and neither W1 or W2 were bumped at all during Summer VIIs, with both crews bumping up one place in their division. We will have about 10 returners and around 25 freshers joining the club in October.
We are looking for an enthusiastic coach for a dedicated group of rowers and incoming freshers wishing to improve SPCWBC’s position in Torpids and Summer VIII’s divisions.

Michaelmas Term – what is expected

The Coach will initially be responsible for training the novices in preparation for Christ Church Regatta.
Returners and any experienced freshers will be focussing on the Isis Winter League and possibly Nepthys Regatta. A discussion will be had between the Coach and SPCWBC Captain and Vice-Captain on the best way to divide coaching of the novices and seniors to ensure maximum progress.
An estimated 4 water outings a week, usually early weekday mornings, and perhaps weekend outings.
Two land training sessions focusing on fitness and technique.
Evening tank training sessions spread out across Michaelmas Term to ensure focus on specific technique improvements that need to be made.

Hilary and Trinity Term – what is expected

Integrating novices and seniors into crews as early as possible to ensure extended training time as a team and therefore increased chances of success at Torpids and Summer VIIIs.
An estimated 4-6 water outings a week, fluctuating as we near key regattas and events.
Two land training sessions a week, focussing particularly on increasing fitness, and improving technique. These do not necessarily need to be coached every week as the Captain and stroke can lead ergs but we would like ensure that each rower knows exactly what they need to work on so that they can work to a termly goal and the coach assists them in achieving this personal goal in order for the crew to work more efficiently together.
Potentially tank training sessions on weekday evenings spread out across the term to allow significant focus on different areas of technique and movement as a crew.
Be available to bank ride during Torpids and Summer VIIIs.

Required to work 10-12 hours a week
Wage: £15 an hour – open to negotiation
