Why become a coach?

If ever you wonder if you should become a coach or if your time would be wasted read this.............


I have been coaching a young girl for about 4 years now and some time ago predicted that with her natural talent, if she kept at it could be playing for Kent or even England.

In the summer of 2015 she (along with 3 other young  girls) won the Kent Ladies Fours and got to the ¼ finals of the National Fours against senior, much older players. 

In 2015 she also played for England in the under 18 test against Wales.
She also got to the last 8 in the under 25 National Finals in 2017.

To say I am pleased for her is a gross understatement!  
Dick Pascoe, Senior Coach.



BDS & Safeguarding

The requirements for these have changed and it is not a requirement that
Coaches have these. The Safeguarding requirement is for those that
REGULARLY come into contact with children or vulnerable adults.

The definition of 'regular' is vague. BKCA recommends that all L3
coaches do have a BDS certificate and also attends a Safeguarding
course. This is for your own protection.

To get more information about the Association contact
the Chairman; Dick Pascoe.
