St Bedes College has developed a proud rowing history over the past 50 years, having achieved excellent results at the highest level. There has been a St Bedes old boy in every NZ Olympic Rowing team since 1964.

We currently have 30 boys that are actively participating in our rowing Program and we are seeking to grow our programme over the coming season.

The Committee is looking to appoint coaches for the 2019/2020 season. This will include two paid coaching positions.

Head coach

We are seeking a Head Coach with experience in a leadership role and a history of achieving great results. The successful applicant will have a strong technical back ground in boat set up, team moral and training schedules.

Assistant Coach

We are also seeking an Assistant Coach that will have prior experience as a coach or strong experience as a rower with a desire to commence coaching.

Ideally the coaches we are seeking to engage will have experience in coaching teenage rowers and be able to develop a culture of enjoyment, rewards for hard work and commitment.

Successful applicants will need to have excellent communication skills in working with our rowers, the St Bedes Rowing committee and the school. It is also expected that coaches will support the values of St Bedes College.

It is an expectation that coaches attend all regattas and training camps. Coaches costs for these events will be covered by the St Bedes Rowing Committee.

13 – 16 hours per week required
