James Chard

Head Coach


I have been in the sport since I was 14 when I joined the Berkshire Renegades Academy. I played until I was 19 when sadly injuries prevented me from continuing my playing career. I loved the sport too much to walk away so I quickly transitioned to coaching. My previous roles include Head Coach of the Berkshire Renegades Juniors, Defensive Coordinator of the Portsmouth Destroyers Women's team, Defensive Backs coach for the Portsmouth Dreadnoughts Senior and Linebackers Coach for the South squad during the 2016 Diamond Series. I am currently a Defensive Backs Coach for the Portsmouth Destroyers and the Head Coach of the Portsmouth Dreadnoughts Women's Team, which I became in 2016. My experience of playing and coaching on both sides of the ball has helped me immensely as a coach and I am excited for the future with the Dreadnoughts Women.
