Jets coaches needed

Western Suburbs Weekly - - -

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 @clare­mon­t­

Jets Will Bee­van, Calin Flood, Ben Met­calfe, who are in the Aus­tralian team.
