British Rowing – Start Coach (Yorkshire)

British Rowing is looking to appoint a Coach for the Yorkshire Start Programme which will be based in Leeds Rowing Club. Start is a Lottery funded programme through UK Sport and Sport England.

About the Role

The aim of the programme is to build the future of the GB Rowing Team by identifying and developing potential Olympians. At London 2012, five of GB’s ten Olympic champions in rowing were from World Class Start. In Rio, eleven World Class Start rowers represented GB at the Olympic Games and eight won medals – five gold, three silver. In Tokyo, Start rowers won a further 3 medals.

This is an excellent opportunity to coach rowers on a daily basis as part of an innovative and successful programme. The coach will be responsible for delivering the Start programme in Leeds including the recruitment, induction and development of rowers onto the Olympic pathway.

The Start programme in Leeds will form part of the Leeds City Rowing project, an exciting initiative involving a network of schools, universities and other local partners, designed to develop rowing participation across the city, and provide the opportunity for talented new rowers to progress through the GB Rowing pathway.
