Club looking for long-term paid slalom coach

Post by tavimurray » Fri Apr 09, 2021 11:44 am

Seren Dwr slalom club based at CIWW, Cardiff are looking for a reliable paid bank and boat-based coach to run training for 2 hours on club nights and occasional weekend days.

Club nights are likely to be Tuesdays or Thursdays or both and will probably start in mid-May.

You don't necessarily have to have slalom coaching qualifications, although ideally you would have. We're probably looking for someone fairly local with competition experience at Div 1 / Prem, experience coaching slalom, and we may be able to help you get qualified as a coach if you aren't already.

Coaching would be on flat water, 6 or 10 cumec releases and groups are likely to be under 18s possibly mixed with adults with experience ranging from beginner through to Div 2 (typically paddlers progress to Welsh squads after this). Safety is run from the bank on the moving water but occasionally especially boat rescues are needed! £30 for weekly 2hr session and £60 for weekend day session.

Please contact Russell Scaplehorn for more info about the club or to apply preferably before 23rd April 2021.
