Teaching Responsibilities

Senior Lecturer in Sports Coaching

Overview

I am a qualified Level 3 rugby league coach and currently the head coach of Widnes Vikings Under 20s who play in the Super League Reserves League. I have extensive experience of high-performance coaching in rugby league, having previously been involved at Warrington Wolves Academy and within the England Youth set-up at Under 15s and 16s level.

Alongside this I am also a coach educator and internal verifier for the Rugby Football League, tutoring on the UKCC Certificate in Coaching Rugby League at Levels 1 and 2.

I have been part of the Sports team at the University of Bolton since 2008 and deliver modules at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

My main academic responsibilities lie within the delivery of sports coaching and applied sports performance modules, in which I can best utilise the experiences and knowledge I have gained coaching elite performers.
