Voluntary Coaching

I can now confirm that Sport England have officially approved the grant application for these coaching sessions.

I am delighted to advise that we have set up a coaching scheme for Junior anglers. This is a joint venture with Kelvedon & District Angling Association & Maldon Angling Society and the plan is to hold coaching sessions throughout the May-October period on a variety of waters, split between the two clubs. Those enrolled will be welcome at all sessions, & we’ll cater for both novices and those who already fish.

We will be running this through accredited Angling Trust Level 2 Coach’s Graham Garnham & Chris Burt, who both hold Enhanced DBS checks, Safeguarding & Protecting Children, First Aid course etc.

We’ll be teaching them everything to get them hooked, from starter sessions using a 4 metre whip, onto full tuition on float rods, feeders, and pole fishing. Every variation we can in fact, the aim is to capture their interest and give them a sport for life!

So if you would like to enrol into the scheme please let us know, parents who’d like to fish too are welcome, though you might have to share the same swim. There will be nominal charges only for bait and tackle replacement, this is a voluntary scheme.

We need Volunteer Assistants as well, if you’d be prepared to help at some or all the sessions, can you please contact me? You would only do as many or as few sessions as you want. We are already funding three of our Volunteers to take the Angling Trust level 1 Coaching qualification, to strengthen our team. We plan to role this scheme out to other clubs too in the future so you can join us with that in mind.
