Seeking a women’s 15s rugby coach to develop our women’s team from Jan – Aug in Waverley (eastern suburbs Sydney), Tuesday nights and Thursday nights (Monday and Wednesday during pre-season), and attend games on Saturdays.
The team – Waverley Women’s Rugby – is over a decade old and is made of up experienced players, total newbies and 3-4 players from abroad who spend a season with the club to enjoy all Australia (and Bondi) has to offer, while helping the team develop their game.
As a result of being based in the eastern suburbs of Sydney (tourist hot spot) coupled with a club ethos that welcomes any new-to-game players and club members, our team is highly transient. Each year we maintain around 10 -15 former players and undertake a committed recruitment drive (including 7s tournaments, open trainings and pre-season regular sessions) to attract an additional 10-15 players required to bolster numbers. This means achieving team cohesion is an important milestone early on. To that end we run a pre-season farm weekend (near Bathurst) in March to spend two full days preparing for the season ahead.
Our coach for 2017 will need to be able to develop and support the team leadership of our visiting internationals, whilst also having the patience and enthusiasm to introduce new people to the game and support committed stalwarts who have big hearts but are not likely to trial for the next Olympics.
The age range is 18 – 42 and abilities, fitness and experience vary dramatically. No politics, no egos, just a great bunch of girls who love rugby and want to continue to improve and demonstrate competitiveness in one of the toughest competitions in Australia.
The team is very social, highly committed to all training sessions, and very welcoming. In our last season we improved from a ranking of eighth (of eight teams) to top four (in a semi-final round that features ~30 former and current Wallaroos).
You’ll be supported by an amazing management system:
- Game day team administrator
- Game day team manager
- Two female committee representatives
- An on and off field leadership team
- Plenty of helpers
- A club of 8 teams that love and highly value their women’s team
