Recruitment of Provincial Coach Coordinators

SNB is recruiting for four new positions as Provincial Coordinating Coaches. Each Coordinating Coach will be responsible for coordinating training, development and competition, activities for a targeted group of swimmers, who meet defined selection criteria. These positions have been established in 2021 so that coaches currently working with clubs can undertake an additional provincial role without abandoning their club responsibilities. Coordinating Coaches will work in collaboration with coach at each swimmer’s club and will not show favouritism towards swimmers from their own club.

Coordinating Coaches will each receive an honorarium of up to $2,500 to compensate them for their time and their necessary travel.
Coaches may apply for more than one position, but each application should be in a separate letter, reflecting the needs of swimmers in each group. All applicants should consult the SNB Performance Program and available lists of swimmers currently qualified for each group.

Applications should be received by the SNB Executive Director before 10th September 2022. Job descriptions are available on the link below:
