Do you love to teach kids new stuff? Are u pedagogic and patient far beyond normal? Do you have some kind of athletic background? Do you love to learn new stuff and teach it to kids? Can you talk to swedish kids and teenagers and get them to listen? Then you are perfect for us as assistant coach.
If you by any change know something about american football its even better.
We practice every day in the week in västerort and need assistant coaches for our younges groups (8-11) and our older groups (14-17). At the moment we practice at Blackeberg, Norra Ängby and Ekerö.
But we are looking for more places to practice with the younger groups as soon as we have a local head coach. Alvik, Spånga, Hässelby, Sundbyberg are areas we are interested in to start new groups.
Specific requirements and information:
Good to understand Swedish and explain in Swedish if necessary.
You do have to an open mind to learn new stuff and accept that they work. You will get access to the latest educations in youth football and to say the least, much have happened the last 4-5 years. We have quite an extensive education program for our assistant coaches who want to be a head coach. We do demand that all our coaches get certified in the program to ensure safety and fun for all kids.
Minimum time commitment:
We practice weekly, 1-7 times a week depending on group. As an assistant coach you commit how much you want. For instance one day a week and every second weekend. The vision for long term future is to have american football played at every lawn and field in Stockholm during a year. For this, we need a lot of coaches with the same vision as us.
When and where will the volunteering take place:
You start as assistant coach at Blackeberg BP or Bromma Kyrka to learn our methodology and way of approaching american football.
If you want to, you will be able to start up your own group in your own neighborhood as a Head coach or continue as an assistant coach at Blackeberg or in any of our local groups.
