There is an exciting opportunity for a Level 2 qualified netball coach to deliver Back to Netball opportunities within South Somerset as part of South Somerset District council’s ‘In It Together’ project.
Back to Netball sessions cover the basics of the game including passing, footwork and shooting as well as offering benefits such as losing weight, and improving muscle tone. So if you are a passionate and enthusiastic coach who is interested in providing women of all ages with a re-introduction to the game of netball, ensuring all sessions are social and fun then this role may be for you!
The Back to Netball sessions are planned to take place in Early 2016 at Crewkerne, Huish Episcopi, Wincanton/Castle Cary and possible other locations within South Somerset.
Due to the number of coaching sessions planned this role could be covered by multiple coaches or covered by one coach (depending on availability) so please get in touch with your availability if you are interested.
