This is a seasonal role which requires people who will be free during the school holidays when our day camps operate (Summer).
A Multi-Sports Coach is responsible for planning and delivering the multi-active programme, combining different sports and activities for 5-14-year-olds.
Multi-Sports Coaches are responsible for coaching and looking after a group of up to 20 children (ratios vary depending on child ages), delivering high-energy, fun and inclusive sessions that ensure every child is engaged and makes progress, regardless of their ability.
Activities can include anything from coaching football, tennis and badminton to leading team-building games. Each session is typically (depending on age) between 30 and 60 minutes long.
Coaches are not expected to stand on the sidelines, instead, they actively participate, showcasing skills, demonstrating good practice and most importantly.. having fun.
We run Kings Camps in over 55 locations across England, Scotland and Wales. Hours vary each day in line with child numbers but we’re looking for coaches to be fully available between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday, during the school holidays. We pay at least the national living wage plus additional accrued holiday pay, additional pay is also available for First Aid qualified individuals.
Ongoing training and performance evaluations will feature in the role, with structured support from your manager. High-performing coaches will be entered onto our staff development programme, with the aim of securing a future promotion (we actively seek to promote from within) and a priority contract for the following season.
For those who cannot commit to coaching for three full weeks, we also have opportunities available as Bank Multi-Sports Coaches, giving you increased flexibility around your work or studies.
