4th July 2018

York City's Academy is looking to appoint a part-time Youth Development Phase (YDP) Coach to support the development of our talented and committed U14's squad for the 2018/19 season.


The Academy side will be playing in the Junior Premier League in the 2018/19 season where the majority of games will be on a Saturday.

There will be two training sessions per week that you would need to plan, deliver and review against the club’s curriculum and frameworks.

You will also be expected to write and deliver reviews with players three times per season in order to agree and reflect upon performance goals with players.


You will play a key role in the delivery of the Academy programme that commits to offering outstanding experiences to the young people within it. You will be able to design outstanding learning environments that are challenging, engaging and allow players to develop their skills and decision-making in line with the Academy curriculum.

You will preferably have experience working with older players in a talent development environment over a number of years. It is important that our coaches are reliable, honest, and committed in order to set the best possible example to our young players.
