After a professional sporting career lasting over 18 years, I successfully transitioned into coaching both locally and professionally . Over the last 10 years of coaching, I have positively impacted young students that are currently playing sports at semi-professional, professional and international levels. Coaching has provided me with the opportunity to work with young people of mixed genders and all age groups, from various social, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, ranging from summer camps and school tours/ ECA's to working in Elite Professional Football Academies.
Having recently completed my Master’s degree in performance coaching, alongside teachers and coaches of Tennis, Netball, Rugby and Cycling from around the world, it further substantiated my belief that there are numerous similarities and transferable skills between high performance coaching and teaching.
As such, 18 months ago, I successfully applied for a sports coaching role with Kellett British International School, Hong Kong. The sports coach role quickly developed into a PE Coaching role, split between the Co-educational; (Prep) Pok Fu Lam campus and the larger (All Through) Kowloon Bay campus, that develops students aged 4 to 18. Whereby my positive character, interpersonal skills, organisation and collaboration into the departments, garnered trust for me to both assist and lead multi-sports PE, Games, Extra- Curricular activities and teams, on and off both campuses.
I believe that my passion to become a qualified teacher of Physical Education, in addition to my experience, skills and background, make me an excellent potential candidate for Coaching/Graduate Assistant sporting roles.
I am conscientious in my duties and work well within a team environment, however I am also experienced and confident enough to use initiative and take a proactive approach to supporting the needs of staff and pupils, qualities that I feel, should, align with the vision and ethos of any potential employers.
It would be a pleasure to further share with you and elaborate on my previous experiences. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at +852 93303617 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your consideration,
