Become a Coach

Become a Catch-A-Balls coachBeing a Catch-a-balls coach is rewarding and fun. It’s great being active and inspiring children to get involved in sport.

We are on the lookout for new coaches.  Training would be done during the first half of the Summer term. You don’t have to have a sporting qualification but an interest in physical activity, basic ball skills and enjoyment of working with children are essential.

Roz who teaches Thames Ditton and Surbiton classes says:  “I aim to make my classes  fun packed with lots of laughter, children are never made to feel they cannot achieve & always receive plenty of praise throughout each class.

“I believe that introducing children to world of sport & healthy living at a young age is the first step towards them seeing sport as fun & part of a healthy lifestyle, not just something they are made to do at school.

“I can see that ‘Catch-a-Balls develops so many essential skills for young children, for example, their motor skills, social skills, ability to listen to instructions & experience both success & failure all in a comfortable & fun environment.”

The work tends to be part-time, but we are always hoping to open new venues so you can build your working week up. Our classes are term time, however, we do run holiday classes and parties at the weekend, but it is entirely up to you if you want to take this extra work on.

Currently we are really looking for people in the Richmond, Twickenham area to take on established classes. We would also like to open venues in Molesey, Walton on Thames and Weybridge.

We will provide the training, lesson plans and kit, all you need to provide is the energy and enthusiasm.IMG_1878

You will need a driver’s license, a car and a current first aid certificate. We will need to do a full DBS check.
