Ladies 1/2 Coach by Wanderers Hockey Club - written 19/05/2015 17:41:55

Battersea Wanderers HC is looking for a Level 3 qualified coach for the Ladies 1st & 2nd XI teams for the 2015/2016 season.

The 1st XI play in Surrey Division 3B, finishing mid-table for the last few seasons. There is momentum and commitment from the team to push for promotion but the team needs a coach who is willing to drive the team’s skills, fitness and team work to the next level. This would include attending 1st team games on Saturdays.

The 2nd XI play in Surrey Division 1, after being relegated from Surrey Prem last season. The team are fully committed to reinstating themselves back in prem next season. The Coach will need to prioritise the needs of both teams, whilst recognising that ultimate priority is with the 1s.

Wanderers are committed to recruiting at the top of the club this season to ensure that there is the strength and depth of squad to take both these teams to the next level.

Wanderers pitches are based in South West London, predominantly at Battersea Park but we also use Kennington and Clapham & Streatham High School when needed.

The clubhouse is nearby, just off Clapham Common at the top of Battersea Rise. We have six men’s and seven ladies’ teams, all of which contribute to the highly sociable nature of the club.


• Level 3 coach preferred but an experienced Level 2 will be considered.

• Running weekly fitness and training sessions for 1s & 2s squads

• Attending 1s matches on a Saturday and 2s when possible

• Work with the Captains for team selection on a regular basis.

• Provide training plans to meet the needs of both teams where possible


Negotiable, based on experience
