Full-Time Performance Coach
Head of Performance
Wakefield Hockey Club are one of the oldest and most successful hockey clubs in England. Based in the heart of Yorkshire, the club boasts two high quality water based pitches enjoyed by the 8 men’s and 5 ladies senior teams, not to mention a thriving junior section giving the club a total of over 500 members.
The Men’s 1st XI have confirmed promotion back to the National North Conference League for the 2019/20 season, with the Ladies very hopeful of doing the same in the next couple of weeks.
As part of the continued development of the Performance structure the club already has in place, this post offers an exciting opportunity for an experienced coach to lead the Men’s and Ladies Performance Programs and to continue to develop a structure of highly talented coaches throughout the club.
Some of the key elements we will be looking for in an application are:
· A level 3 coaching qualification
· A track record of success, ideally within a performance environment (not necessarily as Head Coach)
· Video Analysis experience
· Be able to demonstrate excellent leadership, man management and organisations skill
· Ability to work with and develop key partnerships (University Sports Science support)
In return, you will be joining an ambitious and forward thinking hockey club with a thriving membership, excellent facilities including the two pitches, live video and recording facilities, a sociable club house and a warm and friendly environment that a family club like Wakefield has enjoyed for many years.
