WANTED: NYRC Women Announce Coach Search

Hi Wendy-

Sorry to hear about your hand! We had an outbreak of broken hands on our team this past fall, with three requiring surgery.

Attached please find the coaching ad for NYRC. We would really appreciate it if you could put this up — I know I read your blog, and hopefully some qualified coaches do too. I’ve sent it to you in a pdf and in word form, so please use whatever works best.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks again,

Rebecca Brafman
Captain, NYRC


The New York Rugby Club (NYRC) Women’s team, ranked #2 in the US in Club Division I, is actively seeking knowledgeable individuals who will be committed to building an effective and championship-caliber program beginning Spring 2009. The coaching staff will liaison with our Director of Rugby, Drew Fautley, to develop and implement a coordinated coaching program. Candidates are sought for the Head and Assistant Coach positions.

Responsibilities include:

  • Developing and instructing drills for all levels of athletes
  • Preparing and running team practices
  • Developing overall and subunit team strategies
  • Offering constructive feedback to players
  • Squad selections
  • Attending scheduled games and practices

The NYRC is comprised of a mix of elite, developmental, and beginner athletes. A number represent the US Women’s Senior and Developmental sides, as well as territorial select-sides in both XV’s and VII’s. Additionally, the club consistently draws individuals new to rugby. All are motivated and committed to the club and each other.

Our mission statement is as follows:
“The NYRC women’s team, formerly Gotham Women, is a competitive Division I rugby team that strives to provide a constructive learning environment for athletes of all levels through games and practices and aims to maintain national prominence. As one team in the larger New York Rugby Club, we embody the following values both on and off the field: tradition, participation, community, enjoyment, and respect for ourselves, each other, and our opponents. We hope all players who wear the Orange and Blue, past and present, embrace and represent these principles.”

Prior coaching and/or playing experience is required. Prior coaching of women is not necessary but preferred.

Practices take place in Manhattan during the Spring and Fall. Salary is negotiable and commensurate with experience. Most of your compensation will be for your travel and reimbursement for expenses associated with the team. If you do not currently reside within the US we will make every effort to assist you with work and housing arrangements.
