AFL KiwiKick Coordinator Job Description

Are you fun, confident and love to coach?
Do you love working with kids?

This in-school sports programme is taught in primary, intermediate and secondary schools throughout New Zealand and they need you to coach their sessions! We’re looking for people who are energetic and love working with students. It’s a great opportunity for people wanting to become coaches or teachers to start working within schools!

This programme focuses on developing kids’ motor skills – from basic kicking and catching for primary schools, to advanced ball handling and game play for secondary schools – all with the aim of fostering a love for sport in a fun, sociable environment.

All training is provided.

As a coach, you will be leading the group and coaching them through, drills and games, interacting with the students and teachers, with the main aim making sure everyone is having fun! 

There will be 3-15 hours work per week and you will be running the programme between 8.30am and 4.30pm at a local school.

Actual working hours can vary depending on the school and there is great flexibility to fit hours around your other work or study –  you can work just one day per week or more. The programme runs throughout the year.

Before starting, you will be required to attend one unpaid induction day during the school day at a local school, so you need to have the flexibility to fit one of these days in. As well as giving you a great understanding of how sessions are run, this fun and exciting training day will give you the opportunity to test your leadership and communication skills, and see whether this job is the right fit for you. After this, you will have ongoing training and support as you become a programme coach.

So if you:

  • Love coaching
  • Can commit to this training day
  • Have excellent communication skills
  • Have a positive, friendly attitude
  • Have your own transportation to the schools…

…then this is an amazing opportunity for you to make a difference in your community – apply today
