Putney Town Rowing Club – Lead Coach

Putney Town Rowing Club is a friendly community of rowers based on the River Thames in London. Established in 1922, we moved from Putney in the 80’s to a more spacious, dedicated facility in the shadow of Chiswick Bridge.

Putney Town Women’s Squad is one of the most rapidly developing squads on the Tideway. In recent years the club has aimed to increase the levels of performance in line with the club development plan.

Our Masters Women’s squad has grown to support over 20+ members with ages between early 30s to in their 60s. The squad focuses on development of both sweep and sculling, competing in major Tideway, key masters events and more local regattas.

  • Coach Masters Women sessions on Saturday and Sunday mornings. This can be a mix of water and/or land sessions depending on Tideway conditions.

  • Collaborate with the wider coaching group to align objectives with the club development program, develop compatible programs & target similar races.

The position will be considered either as paid, where applicable, or voluntary. Applications are welcome from various levels of experience and backgrounds. Paid coaches will require a minimum British Rowing L2 coaching qualification.
