We’re looking to hire a coach for the upcoming fall season! We practice early September to mid-November, and we don’t have a spring season. We typically practice 4:30-6:30 on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, with five or six weekend games throughout the season. As part of NEWCRC’s Tier 2, we play 15s and compete for a bowl game.
Coaching responsibilities include running practices 2-3 times a week, teaching basic skills and more advanced strategies, and coaching our games. This is a paid position – the stipend is between $2000-$3000 each season, depending on our yearly budget from the university. This can be an interim, one season position (September-November 2021), or longer term. When it comes to off-the-field responsibilities, we are a student-run team. Our student leadership handles schedule/travel logistics, administrative duties, and publicity.
We are a team of 30 tight-knit, hard-working players. Many of us joined with no rugby experience, but quickly learned the game and became a strong, rugby education-focused team that went 4-1 and took second place in our tier in Fall 2019. Previous coaching experience not required, just enthusiasm for rugby! Working with our team is a great way to get gain coaching experience and get more involved with the rugby community.
