Paul Gallager, Sports and Coaching Manager
I have worked for RLT since 2009, initially starting off as a community sports coach and then progressing over the last 12 years into my current role.
My main responsibilities within my role is managing the schools coaching team (8 staff including myself), working with the School Games Organiser for Rossendale (Nathan Bibby) to organise competitions and festivals for Rossendale Primary Schools. I am also responsible for liaising with local football clubs and commercial groups around the use of facilities at The Adrenaline Centre, Valley Leadership Academy and Marl Pits for training purposes, and also 6 facilities were grass/3G pitches are available for competitive fixtures.
I am also the safeguarding lead for RLT, and responsible for the junior courses that run in each of our centres.
Future plans over the next 24 months include continuing to grow the schools coaching programme, continue to liaise with local clubs around the use of our facilities for training/fixture purposes and also provide junior courses within our centres covering a range of different activities from children aged 18 months to 11 years old.
