British Rowing – Satellite Coach – Yorkshire

The GB Rowing Team’s aim is to create an Olympic Pathway that is open, accessible and clear, so that any individual who has the potential to row for Great Britain can achieve their ambitions.

The Satellite Coach will play a key role within that Pathway, supporting the Performance Development Coaches in Yorkshire to identify, recruit, and develop new athletes with future Olympic potential who might not otherwise enter the sport of rowing or excel within a traditional ‘mainstream’ rowing pathway. The post-holder will act as the link between the Regional GB Performance Development Academy, and the wider region, supporting identified ‘satellite’ athletes and their coaches in clubs, supporting regional coach development, and engaging with Youth Rowing Outreach programmes to create opportunities for talent to be developed from groups who wouldn’t otherwise engage in the sport of rowing.

Key Responsibilities

  • Working closely with the Performance Development Coach to identify new rowers with clear potential to perform on the Olympic pathway via local and/or national Talent Identification testing.
  • Establishing and maintaining contact with relevant local partner organisations that can assist in finding talent, particularly through creating links with Youth Rowing Programmes and other organisations to engage potential talent from groups who wouldn’t otherwise engage with or have access to the sport of rowing. This may include occasionally supporting sessions with those organisations in order to develop those links.
  • Supporting the Performance Development Coach with coaching and developing rowers, in particular providing assistance with training at the Regional Performance Development Academy and covering sessions where required.
  • Working with the England Talent Manager to run wider regional activity which supports the development of potential rowers, for example the Women’s and Student Development programmes.
  • Running regional camps and other activities associated with the above.

A bit about you

We are looking for ambitious coaches who can work as part of a team to successfully develop rowers progressively following a long-term development model. You should have the experience and personal qualities to enable you to work within a high-performance rowing environment, and aspire to work with clubs and coaches to create a hub of activity which enables individuals, who may not otherwise have the opportunity, to reach the very top of the sport.
