Job title:Newbridge 1st Senior Ladies Coach

Location: K Leisure Naas

Hours (per week): Monday 7.30-9pm & Wednesday 7.30-8.30pm

Responsible to: Newbridge Hockey Club Committee


In recent years, Newbridge HC has gone through a number of challenges, however many of our developing junior players have stepped up to the senior squad, while a number of ‘older’ experienced players were moving on. The 2017/18 season saw the team work incredibly hard to gain promotion to Division 6, and winning the Div 7/8 Cup final.

Newbridge HC has a strong junior section, therefore we are looking for a coach to support, and further develop these talented players into the senior squad. We also recognise the need to encourage more experienced senior players back into the ladies side of the club, with a structured coaching approach.

The team are looking to make a real impact in Division 6 next season, therefore this will be a rewarding opportunity for an incoming coach.

The successful applicant (will be non-playing), and should be available for training 2 evenings per week as well as travelling to team matches.

Please note we endeavour for the ladies to train twice per week, however please note this may be subject to availability/commitment of the players.
