NZCPA is seeking coaching applications for the 2024 World Championships.
We are looking to fill two positions for Assistant Coaches:
We are looking for coaches that will assist the head coaches with planning and implementation of training camps. We will be looking for coaches who have strong technical skills, are willing to uphold our strong team culture and have good people skills.
The assistant coaching positions to the Senior and U21’s teams will not be required to travel to the World Champions in China but will be required to attend all training camps up to leaving for China. Role descriptions are available on the NZCPA website.
If you think that one of these positions may be right for you then please contact Jacqui Frost, NZCPA Coaching Manager, email@example.com and/or submit your application. This is an exciting opportunity to work alongside and be part of our potential medal winning teams.
Applications close 5pm, 17th November 2023. We will be looking to appoint these roles as soon as possible to assist with Worlds planning.
Please state in your application which team you are interested in coaching.
