The Austin Valkyries, based in Austin, TX, are a competitive Division 1 Women's Rugby Team.

Our current coaching staff is retiring and so we are actively seeking knowledgeable rugby individuals who will be committed to building an effective and championship-caliber program beginning in Spring 2010.

Candidates are sought for the Head and Assistant Coach positions at this time.

Responsibilities include:

  • Developing and instructing drills for all levels of athletes
  • Preparing and running team practices
  • Developing overall and subunit team strategies
  • Offering constructive feedback to players
  • Squad selections
  • Attending scheduled games and practices

The Valkyries are comprised of a mix of elite, developmental, and beginner athletes. A number of our players represent the US Women's Developmental sides, as well as territorial select-sides in both XV's and VII's. Additionally, the club consistently draws individuals new to rugby.

We are able to compensate on the potential coach's needs and our resources.
