Coaches for our senior and junior teams of the Eindhoven Raptors

Volunteer workOngoing

Function description

A dynamic club is an apt description of the Eindhoven Raptors. The number of junior members grows quickly and also our seniors follow this trend.

The juniors play tackle- and flag football via the AFBN and casually with other American Football teams. The seniors play competitively with a friend team and next year we hope to play with our own team in the AFBN competition. Moreover two of our juniors have been invited to play for the Dutch Junior Lions, something we are very proud of.
We expect the coach to develop the players qualities optimally and motivate the players to propagate their commitment to the team and club. You are familiar with the rules of American Football and make sure the players follow these rules throughout games and practice. Moreover you have affinity with the game and try to match or improve the team’s performance, enabling more teams to play competitively next year. You give advice to the board on the policy to implement regarding players and team building and other things that catch your eye as coach.

Shortly we will change our trainings location and our club’s accommodation and we hope to popularize American Football throughout the region with the Eindhoven Raptors.

With our growing number of members we have the following vacancies:

- Head coach
- Position coach
- Defensive/offensive coordinator

Juniors: our junior coaches like to play along with the seniors and therefore we are have the following vacancies for our junior team staff:
- Head coach Flag football
