Coaching 2007/8: a progress report

Meeting with the club last night (due to start 8pm, started 9pm, immediately preceeded by cricket match v Welwyn [we won!]... Total time at home... minimal. "I thought you said the rugby season had finished"... "erm, well yes...")

Anyway... club's head of coaching (Phil "Muddy" Waters) says our lack-of-coach problem is the clubs major challenge. Various ways of finding someone discussed - including maybe even paying someone.

However some "fall-backs" agreed... including a rota of coaches to work with us on Wednsdays (and Sundays when we have no games). Also Dave Sharp said he might spend some time with you, especially now that Ruby is back. Many of these coaches will be Level 2 - so, though not dedicated to us for the season, they will be pretty good.

Also there is a student returning to Letchworth after three years playing the game at University of Sunderland who has said that she might be able to "help out".

Obviously the main problem is our away games because they are considerably further amd require a much greater commitment than boys games do... but we can get by there (and the games are videoed so the coaches can watch them and work out what needs doing).

So - we are getting somewhere...
