Senior Coach, Netball

Responsibilities

The ESF Wildcats Netball programme in Hong Kong seek a qualified Level 2 Netball Coach Award holder to join their coaching team as a primary school netball coach in their After-School Programme with at least three years’ experience, in a similar coaching environment.

Candidates must be energetic, enthusiastic, have a passion for sport in general and will be expected to have a proven track record with suitable experience of working with young children between the ages of 3 to 12 years old. It is essential that candidates have experience of working with very young children in our core, primary school age-group market and can demonstrate experience of providing dynamic, progressive sessions to these young age groups through structured session planning in our After-School extra-curricular programme. Work experience in a community coaching environment will be extremely useful. Please note; evidence of coaching experience in a primary school setting will need to be provided at interview stage.

As with all sports coaching posts, this role involves unsocial working hours, including weekends. Weekend coaching involves delivering high-quality coaching sessions at venues across Hong Kong and also coaching competitive teams in league games and tournaments. The Wildcats Netball team members range in age from 5 – 18 years old.

In addition, as a member of the ESF Sports team, candidates will be expected to work during standard school holiday periods to deliver multi-sports coaching sessions in our Sports Camps and Clinics programme. Any additional NGB-accredited sports qualifications will be useful for this aspect of the job.
