West Cheshire U13/U14 Development Squad Manager
The Cheshire U13 & U14 Development squads exist to provide a testing and development led route for high potential players to enter into the county and RFU coaching programme.
An experienced rugby coach/manager is required to head up the c70 strong U13 and U14 West Cheshire development squad. Working with existing administration team and a number of experienced junior coaches the roles involves:
a) Coordinating the Sept-Oct Assessment of c150 players
b) Selecting two squads of c35 players for U13 and U14 age groups
c) CRB checks on coaches to RFU guidelines
d) Agreeing and organising training sessions Oct-April
e) I.d, order and distribute kit to coaches
f) Implement a structured training plan to develop players within an RFU approved programme
g) Select and co ordinate U13 round robin event vs Central and East Cheshire (April 2016)
h) Select and co ordinate U14 DPP fixture vs Merseyside, Lancs, Central/East Cheshire
I) Act as central point of contact for Cheshire wide U13/U14 activities
j) Improve and develop the process and structure of West U13/U14 development squads
k) Work with local schools, clubs and RFU employees in West Cheshire to improve the process and i.d high potential players for the programme
Ideally the Manager will not be linked to a West Cheshire U13 or U14 squad to allow objectivity especially in squad selection and recommendations to Sale Sharks etc.
A PE background is preferred although not essential, with RFU L2 again preferred but not essential. Strong administrative skills are essential and the ability to work across a volunteer group of people who support the process will be key to the success of the manager in this role.
