Key Stage One Coach Job Description

About Kings Camps

Kings Camps are a market leading not-for-profit organisation that offer children’s sports and activity day camps in the Easter, summer and half term school holidays

Our coaches – we call them Red Tops – deliver high quality sports sessions, getting children and young people active, having fun and learning together.

To become a Red Top, you’ll need to possess energy, passion, and a commitment to child development that we call The Kings Factor®.

Job Description – Key Stage One (KS1) Multi Sports Coach

Reporting to the Site Manager, the KS1 Coach is responsible for planning and delivering our Multi Active programme to children between 5 and 8 years old, combining different sports and activities in one week of Kings Camps.

KS1 Coaches are responsible for coaching and looking after our youngest age group on camp. You will lead and inspire a group of up to 8 children, 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 – 40 minutes long.

Child safety is our number one priority, so coaches need to ensure that the welfare of children is paramount at all times, supervising children during their lunch breaks, participating in swimming sessions, overseeing the safe use of equipment, and promptly recording any incidents.

Each camp will have a team of Multi-Sports Coaches, so you’ll need to be able to work proactively and collaboratively with your peers. You’ll also need to maintain professional relationships with children, parents and carers, communicating positively and providing feedback on a child’s progress throughout camp.

Our Red Tops are not expected to stand on the side lines but to actively participate in delivery, showcasing skills, demonstrating good practice and most importantly…have fun!
