Role: As one of the Craggy Youth Team Coaches you’ll be delivering a carefully planned and structured season of sessions to prepare the Team for Competitions and Events throughout the year. You’ll work alongside Mark Croxall and the other Youth Team coaches to maintain a high level of performance and talent development. With Team members already amongst the very best competition and rock climbers in the World this is a great opportunity to both work with and learn from the best.

Hours: The Team meets every Wednesday evening from 5pm til 7pm during term-time and you would be expected to attend the vast majority of those sessions along with the other Coaches.

You should also have a good knowledge of different climbing styles and be a very competent lead belayer. The successful applicant will be subject to DBS checks. Please Note: We are not looking for an established “Performance Coach”. However, this could be the first step on the ladder for someone wanting to pursue a career in climbing coaching.

Holiday: Holiday Pay is included in the Hourly Rate for this position.

Pay: Hourly Rate is £8.65 per hour.

Overtime: There is the opportunity to work additional hours at your normal hourly rate providing 1:1 coaching to Youth Team members. This will be arranged directly with you by the team member’s parent and will be dependent on your availability.
