Posted:As some of you may know, I'm a bit of a rowing nut. (they're a scary kind of nut; comes with early mornings, lots of drinking and if you're a lightweight then eating problems)

I had always hoped that when I finished highschool I'd get a job as a paid coach at one of the local private schools, but I moved away from my hometown to a city where no-one (and therefore no head-coaches) knew me. After a year of wondering how I'd get my foot in the door (asking friends to put in good words for me etc), I decided to bite the bullet and contact the head of rowing at a prestigious boys' school near my house and was given an interview. I didn't think I'd have much chance being a first-time female coach at a boys' school, but I figured I had nothing to lose.

I didn't hear from them for a while, so I emailed them saying I was still interested, and I got a reply saying that they were also still interested but had lost my contact details. And then today I got an email from them OFFERING ME A POSITION!!!!

I'll be coaching a year 9 eight and because I'm a first-time coach then they will arrange a mentor for me, which I think is really good of them, rather than just throwing me in the deep end (because I'll be honest; the idea of 9 adolescent boys is scary!!!)

I'm so excited!!! I'm going to be a coach!!! bounce bounce2 ubbrollsmile bounce2 bounce
