Korfball Australia is calling for applications for the positions of Assistant Coach and Team Manager for the soon-to-reform National Squad, who are next scheduled to play in the World Games in Wroclaw, Poland, in July 2017. More information on the World Games, including dates, can be found on the event page. This page will be updated as more information comes to hand.
The requirements for each position, as well as an application form, appear below. The successful applicants will work in the National Squad Coaching Team, headed by Phil Sibbons, who was reappointed as the National Coach earlier this year. All applications must be completed no later than September 30.
Successful applicants must be able to demonstrate a high level of commitment and availability to the National Squad program. While we understand that life does get in the way sometimes, applicants must be able to attend at least 80% of all National Squad activities, including regular weeknight trainings, once-a-month weekend-long training camps, educational and team-building events, as well as any other activities organised by the National Coach in Australia. There is no obligation to travel with the team to Poland, although this would be an added bonus. Experience in a High Performance role is looked upon favorably, as is International Korfball experience, either in a playing, coaching or administrative role.
Successful applicants must be able to demonstrate a willingness to assist in whatever is required by the National Squad Coaching Team, in order to further the success of the National Squad. This is a multi-faceted role, and can include administrative tasks, liaising with Korfball Australia and/or tournament organisiers, ordering and collecting uniforms, and many other vital jobs. There is no minimum time commitment, any time you have available to help will be used. Additionally, there are no required skills or experience required, but any unique skills you have may be made use of. There is no obligation to travel with the team to Poland, although this would be an added bonus.
Sponsorship and Fundraising
Successful applicants must be able to demonstrate an ability to generate funds for the National Squad, in order to cover training expenses, and subsidise other costs. Experience in a fundraising role is a must, and experience in gaining sponsorship from the corporate sector is highly favorable. Successful applicants will liaise with Korfball Australia to generate fundraising ideas and sponsorship packages, before implementing these plans.
As with all roles within Korfball Australia, these roles are on a volunteer basis. Any travel must unfortunately be at the applicants own expense.
