SCBC is looking for a new Women’s Coach

Somerville College Women’s Boat Club is seeking a knowledgeable, enthusiastic coach to help us build on the great progress we’ve made in the last few years.

In the last two years our women’s squad of 30 has:

  • Won blades at Torpids 2015
  • Returned to Division 1 in Summer VIIIs
  • Qualified 3 boats into Summer VIIIs
  • Acquired a new boat and fully refurbished our second boat
  • Got a structured alumni support network in place who raised £8,300 this year to support the women’s squad
  • Competed at external Heads
  • Provided 3 members of the Oxford Blue boat squad
  • Benefitted from an experienced and passionate committee

We’re looking for a coach to help us fulfil our vision of returning to being Head of the River. Hours and salary are negotiable but to provide a framework the role involves coaching 3-4 sessions a week for 3 8-week terms. This includes some early mornings and weekend slots and would suit a coach who has or is acquiring a level 2 coaching qualification. If you’d like to help us achieve our ambitions please contact us at for an informal discussion over a coffee.
