Coaching Team


All club officials work on a voluntary basis and we are extremely grateful for the time they donate to the club week-in, week-out. Each individual is fully DBS-checked and holds up-to-date qualifications relevant to their role. All our coaches are trained in disability awareness, first aid and safeguarding. We are always looking to expand the team so if you think you would like to become involved in coaching, judging or any other club-related role, then please speak to one of the senior coaches.
