Sports Trainers Wanted

We’re looking to add to our team of sports trainers for the 2018 season. This is a great opportunity for students studying in related fields (physiotherapy, massage etc.) to get hands on experience in a local sports club.

31046759_1661510070602023_4048109083595208329_nWe play in the VAFA, with two men’s teams as well as a women’s team.

Roles for the position include, though are not limited to:
– strapping
– rub downs
– general first aid
– recording injuries across the season
– running water

Level 1 sports trainer accreditation is required, the club can assist with organising this where needed.

Availability is needed on one training night per week (Monday/Tuesday/Thursday) and one match each Saturday (times vary).

Experience not essential though is preferred, remuneration to be negotiated.

To express interest please get in touch via email!

Another week on the road, as the women’s squad journeyed out to Donvale to clash with Whitefriars.

Preparing pre game in the visitors change rooms that might be generously described as having the footprint of a medium sized postage stamp certainly added a cozy element to many player’s pre-game rituals!
