Wapiti rugby football club cookout

Wapiti RFC are looking for a 200 level coach, primarily for our middle school tackle program. This position is accompanied by a stipend and incentives for the 2015 spring season. The ideal candidate will have experience working with youth rugby players and embody the principles of the Positive Coaching Alliance, have the ability to put together and disseminate training plans from introductory principles to game strategies and positional play, be a positive role model for our young athletes, be able to interact with the board of directors to whom they would be reporting, and attend training at various locations within the city of Chicago.

Coaching CVs may be directed to info@chicagowapitirfc.com. Candidates will be expected to attend and contribute to one of the fall clinic dates scheduled this fall (see our calendar here). The primary function of our organization is to introduce kids from the ages of 4 to 14 to rugby – the ability to do so in an entertaining manner is paramount. There is a USA Rugby 200 level certification at Luther North High School on Aug 23. Wapiti will pay the registration fee of a desirable applicant who lacks the 200 level certification and all previously CIPP’ed Wapiti Rookie Rugby Coaches.
