The club has an experienced and very committed coaching team and has benefited from a number of parents who have now obtained a coaching qualifications. All are unpaid volunteers.

The coaching team is split so that a team of up to four coaches work with each training group:

Members of Groups C  and F  often help with the younger groups in the first hour of training.

We are always looking for more helpers, so if you are interested in helping in anyway or coaching please contact Head Coach, Geoff Jones at Headcoach@waldenjnr.co.uk
