Leeds Beckett Coach Wanted. Leeds Beckett Coach Wanted.

Leeds Beckett University are going into the 16-17 season currently without a Rowing Coach.

The club received a Sport England grant last year which was used to purchase new boats for the club, who have approximately 30+ members attending training each week during academic term time. They train both indoor (at our Headingley Campus on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 6pm-8pm) and outdoor (at Yeadon Tarn mostly in the early mornings) although, presently, days and times are very flexible and can be based around coaching availability. The club are keen to develop both their participation and performance strands, and compete in British Universities & Colleges Sport competitions as well as regional meets.

We are able to pay a coach £1500 for the year, but there may be flexibility with this if required

For more information please contact Sarah Humphreys
