Volunteers’ Week 2017: what’s your coaching story?

Subscribe to RSS
  • Today marks the beginning of Volunteers’ Week (1 – 7 June). With 74% of coaches giving up their time voluntarily it’s a week that is all about celebrating the difference many of you make and I’m keen to hear your stories.

    How did you get started in coaching? What motivates you to keep coaching? 

    Whether you are a volunteer coach or not I’d love to get to know more about you and your passion for coaching.

    As always I look forward to reading your replies

    Cheers

    Rob

  • It's always great to celebrate our volunteers - although the majority are very modest about it all.

    I got started with coaching rugby as it proved a great way to keep warm while watching my son train and play! Things kind of snowballed from there and I now help run part of the club's Academy as well as being Club Coaching Coordinator (and a few other bits and pieces).

    What motivates me? Seeing our group grow week on week, both in numbers as well as playing ability - and in the kids attitudes. The RFU are very keen on 'developing kids through rugby' and not just coaching them to win at all costs. 

    Hand on heart, I'd happily adopt my entire squad - but not sure what my wife would say about that!!

    its also great to see our success rubbing off on other age groups, and more coaches getting qualified and starting their journeys. We have a brilliant team of volunteers - and an evening next weekend when the club shows its gratitude with some drinks and nibbles!!

    Hahaha I don’t think I’ve ever heard someone get started like that before Andy!

    Brilliant!

    Thanks for sharing a little bit about your story Andy really enjoyed reading it this morning!

  • Considering I had no intention of getting involved originally Rob, it's become rather addictive! All down to a great bunch of kids (and parents) 👍
