Senior Men’s Head Coach 2019
The Senior Men’s Heads Coach is accountable for leading the performance of the 1st XV team – which includes, but is not limited to; new talent identification, existing individual player development, game plan development and game-plan execution within a positive, achievement focused team environment. To be successful within this role, it will require leadership of coaching resources and collaborative engagement with the Director of Men’s Rugby, Team Captains, and other club staff and volunteers.
This role will also be involved in coaching the technical and tactical development of players within the 2nd XV from which the 1st XV draws, and, a contribution to the Waterloo Rugby Academy (U19 and U17 – the club’s future 1st XV players), and the ongoing up-skilling of the club’s rugby coaches in conjunction with the other Coaches in the Club.
You will be expected to build and lead a team of coaches responsible for coaching the senior Men’s teams, both on and off the field, to a standard that enhances the reputation of the club and creates a culture of enjoyment and personal growth.
You will be responsible for the athletic development of the players through the organization of team practices (twice weekly – Tuesdays and Thursdays), ensuring that athletes train and perform to a high standard of health and safety, maintaining a positive line of communication with the board to ensure support when needed, and providing support and guidance to the team chosen on game days (once weekly – Saturdays.) The head coach of the senor Waterloo County Men’s team should expect to work in different environments, from gyms to playing fields and sometimes in adverse weather conditions, for the duration of the Men’s rugby season which is from April until October.
This is an outstanding opportunity to play a key role in the future of one of the largest Rugby clubs in the region, working alongside a focussed and ambitious Executive Board always looking to contribute to the clubs ongoing success.
