The club require more coaches to take Weedies sessions on Thursday nights from 5.30pm. Coaches need to be proficient paddlers as this is an advanced session. Assistance will be given on session planning and any other help you require. Without coaches we cannot run this session.

Helping to run a weedies session has some great benefits:

  • good excuse to turn up
  • you still get a good training session in
  • support and encourage newer paddlers to integrate into weed catchers
  • encourage the more experienced paddlers to train effectively and push themselves
  • fun
  • give something back to our great club
  • looks great on your CV to spend time volunteering in the community / coaching others

You would be welcome (but it's not compulsory) to attend coaches meeting once a month (after weedies) to provide input into how coaching is run and developed at Arawa. You get a pretty cool coach cap to wear and the knowledge you are doing good at the club! Please, if you have the skills, don’t be shy to put your hand up, we really need your help. Contact Rosie or Paul if you are willing to assist.
