We are looking for a Lead Community Coach to deliver our existing programme in Crawley & surrounding areas. The programme currently delivers sessions in almost every primary school in Crawley and all 7 Secondary Schools.

The role is primarily focused on delivering sessions with primary school children during breakfast, curriculum and after school clubs, but will also see the coach deliver in our Crawley Basketball League (CBL) & National League programmes.

The CBL caters for players aged 5-18, boys & girls with grassroots sessions based at the secondary schools around the town. Our National League Programme offers teams from U12 to U18, from regional to Premier, as is one of the most successful programmes in the South.

The candidate will need to be a confident communicator and will also be in charge of the planning and oversight of the CBL and delivery of high quality National League sessions and game coaching.

We’re looking for active L2 coaches, currently coaching in the basketball community, with the ability to drive to be able to deliver fun & progressive sessions all across Crawley.

‘This is a great full time coaching role within our ever-growing programme’, said Karl Youngman. ‘Its revolves around one of the more important roles in the club, which is bringing the sport to new players and getting them involved in the club pathway. I’m excited to see what candidates we will have.’

Community Programme Expansion

We’re excited to announce 5 new coaching jobs in partnership with the Governments Kickstart Scheme, which aims to create new jobs for 18-24 year olds.

The full time community coaching roles will be primarily focused around schools coaching, but will also have outlets to expand CBL sessions to Crawley and the surrounding areas. There will also be opportunities to get involved with the clubs National League programme.

Whilst we are predominantly looking for ready made basketball coaches, the scheme also provides funding for training, which means previous coaching qualifications and experience may not be necessary.

The role will start in September and applicants will need to be able to drive, or on their way to being able to drive by the start of the position.

“This is a great opportunity for us to create new jobs for young people, who most definitely will have been hit hard by the pandemic, whilst also expanding our provision and help bring basketball to more and more children” Said Karl Youngman. “We are looking for active basketball coaches, but if there are any coaches out there looking to change sport, or people with interest in the sport but not yet having coached, we’re looking for you too. Freddie Winton is a model example of a player fresh out of college, but in the last couple of years has transitioned into coaching. He is now thriving in his community role whilst also heading up our U14 Conference National League squad and coaching for the South East Region. We’re looking for more Freddies!’
