2015 State Teams: Coaches & Support Staff

Applications are now being called for a number of NSW State Team coaching and support staff positions for the 2015 season.

After the success of the inaugural squad this year, the NSW 17/U Development Squad will once again be in place for 2015, with Netball NSW calling for applications to Head Coach, Assistant Coach and Team Manager for this squad.

Another pilot program introduced in 2014 will also return for next season, with applications being called for NSW Swifts Apprentice Coach.

Jointly held this year by State Team Head Coaches Briony Akle and Moira Gaha, this coaching program forms part of the Netball NSW High Performance Coach Development strategy aimed at increasing the depth of quality high performance coaches within NSW.

The successful applicant/s will work with the NSW Swifts’ coaching team from late September through to the 31 August 2015, with this season-long Apprenticeship giving them an insight into the planning, preparation, competition and review phases of the NSW Swifts 2015 ANZ Championship campaign.

Applications are also being sought for Assistant Coaches for the NSW 21/U, 19/U, Netball NSW (NNSW) Waratahs and NNSW Blues Teams, Team Managers for the NSW 21/U, NNSW Waratahs and NNSW Blues, plus Physiotherapists for NSW 21/U, 19/U, 17/U Teams as well as the NNSW Waratahs and NNSW Blues.

Two year appointments for 2014 NSW Head Coaches Megan Simpson (21/U), Briony Akle (19/U) and Moira Gaha (17/U), as well as 17/U Assistant Coach Amber Cross, will see these coaches have an opportunity to apply their learnings from their 2014 campaigns and raise the bar in 2015.

Any coaches, managers and physiotherapists who may be interested in applying for any of these roles, please refer to the State Team Officials Policy and the Selection policy and Procedures documents for further information regarding these roles.  Flyers and application forms are available on the Netball NSW website under the State Teams page.

Please note that all applications are to be received by Netball NSW by 4pm Friday 22 August.
