Community Project Assistant
I originally started volunteering for Autism-Friendly Rugby when it first started but in August 2019 I was asked to become a Community Project Assistant. I first became involved with the Trust through the Rugby Academy and then started volunteering at the Autism-Friendly Rugby sessions and then became a CPA. I enjoy working with the kid’s and seeing the smiles on their faces and the friendships and relationships built through the sessions. I have also enjoyed watching the children’s confidence grow and their development over the period I have worked with them. My coaching role has boosted my own confidence too and has also helped me gain valuable work experience. It has enhanced my skill level of working with others and finding ways of dealing with each child’s needs so that they have the most fun possible at each session. The Trust has also made me realise that I want to continue working with children when I am older.
I bring the following experience and Qualifications
- experience of coaching from both club level and school level
- experience of playing the game
- Level 1 coaching
- Level 1 refereeing
- First aid in the workplace
