The main role of the Coaching Officer is to promote best practice in coaching and games development in the Club, helping to ensure that there is a regular programme of games for all players and an available Coach Education pathway for coaches.

The main responsibilities of the Schools Officer are to liaise with the local schools to promote Go-Games in the school and foster a Club-School link.

Anyone who may be interested should contact the Club for a chat and further details.
