Kings Camps Football Coach

About the role

Reporting to the Camp Manager, the Football Coach is responsible for planning and delivering our Football Kings programme which takes place each morning of camp. The programme combines a range of football skills and fun games for 5 – 10 year olds in an intense week of Kings Camps.

Football Coaches are responsible for coaching and looking after a group of up to 20 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 defending, possession, control, set pieces and shooting, resulting in an end of week match to demonstrate skills learned. Each session is typically (depending on age) between 30 and 60 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 breaks, participating in sessions, overseeing the safe use of equipment, and promptly recording any incidents.

Popular pgoramme weeks may require Assistant Football Coaches, so you’ll need to be able to work proactively and collaboratively as a team. You’ll also need to maintain professional relationships with children, parents and carers, communicating positively and providing feedback on a child’s progress on 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!

Child numbers and needs of our members vary, but we’re looking for coaches to be fully available for Football Kings programme weeks (between 9.15 and 12.45pm, Monday to Friday). For those who want to commit to coaching for full days, we also have opportunities available for Bank Sports Coaches, giving you the opportunity to join the Multi-Active Programme in the afternoon of camp.

About Kings Camps

Kings Camps are a market leading not-for-profit organisation offer sports and activity day camps at over 50 locations across the UK, during the school holidays, getting children and young people active, having fun and learning together.

Our coaches (we call them Red Tops) deliver high quality sports camps with an energy, passion and commitment to child development that we call the Kings Factor.

Founded in 1991, we were inspired by US-style summer camps. We decided youngsters in the UK would love to experience school holiday camps too and establish a model which meant we could reach even more children through not-for-profit work in the UK and overseas.
