Openings available for volunteer assistant coaches


Continuing their international success from the last five years, the BAFA Great Britain women's contact team - currently No.1 in IFAF European Rankings - is seeking assistant coaches to work with Head Coach Jim Messenger and the existing staff to provide additional capacity as the team prepares for the Women's European Championships in Summer 2019. 

The team is looking to appoint assistant coaches to both offense and defense, plus other support aspects of the programme.

Candidates must, by time of application, be members of BAFA in good standing, be registered and insured with BAFCA and hold a minimum Level 1 qualification from BAFCA, with an expectation to attain BAFCA Level 2 within one year of appointment. Successful candidates may also be required to attend additional training events within the same period. 

These are voluntary roles which require a significant commitment of time and are self-funding for travel and any accommodation at practice camps etc. The general location of practice activities is the Midlands, UK. Time commitment is likely to be in the area of two days per month, plus some midweek evening hours in communications with players and staff. Candidates must be able to commit to practice events on both Saturdays and Sundays, as required, through until the culmination of the WEC 2019 tournament, due to take place in Leeds, UK, from August 10 - 18. Further details of timings and commitments can be provided on application. 

Candidates should apply to Head Coach Jim Messenger and copy in National Programme Lead Kirsty Cavanagh enclosing their CV and coaching CV no later than noon on Monday 11 March 2019. Candidates selected for interview will be notified within that week with an expected appointment date soon after interviews are concluded.
