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 firstname.lastname@example.org for an informal discussion over a coffee.
