Merton College Boat Club are looking for an enthusiastic and ambitious assistant Men’s coach for Hilary 2018, extending into Trinity if things go well. Competitive pay available, all applications welcome. Trial outings will be held on the Isis in the next two weeks.

You’d be responsible for the training programmes of M2 and M3, setting both land and water programmes with a view to both boats being competitive crews in torpids; this would include coaching on most weekday mornings and on weekends. As well as this, you might be expected to assist our head coach with training M1, mainly through coaching weekday morning outings. Exact schedule and workload is flexible.

Your responsibilities:
• Help design and oversee an exciting and challenging training programme with weekly water sessions, erg sessions, and circuits.
• Assist in the coaching of M1
• Be available to coach up to 6 outings per week including up to 5 early morning sessions (exact schedule negotiable)
• Together with the Men’s captains, select M2 and M3 crews for Torpids and Summer Eights.
• Bank ride your crew at each of those regattas.
• Ideally, be available for a 5-day external training camp in April.

If interested, please email me on or call/text on 07756 108634 and we can arrange trial outings and discuss further details.
