Jets coaches needed
CLAREMONT Jets Gridiron Club wants to avenge its junior grand final loss of last season and needs a new coach to get there.
The club’s junior team recovered from finishing second last on the ladder in the 2014-15 season to make the grand final this year, but lost to Rockingham Vipers.
The McGillivray Oval-based club needs coaches for its junior and senior teams for the 2016-17 season.
Jets coach of 10 years David Holmes, who led the juniors to the grand final, said coaches needed to be enthusiastic about educating players.
“It’s a very hands-on type of coaching because most Australian kids and players don’t come from a gridiron background,” Holmes said.
“There’s an emphasis on teaching the skills and really focusing on those throughout the season.”
Four of the clubs players – Will Beevan, Calin Flood, Ben Metcalfe and Lachlan Poor – play for the Australian team.
Juniors train on Tuesdays and Thursdays and seniors Mondays and Wednesdays. Matches are played on Saturdays. To register interest, email president @claremontjets.com.au.
