After the success of the 2017 Softball Australia Women’s Coaching Panel, Softball Australia are now calling for applications for the 2018 Women’s Coaching Panel.
As was the case this year, the 2018 Coaching Panel will be a pool of appointed coaches working under the direction of Head Coach Fabian Barlow with the Aussie Spirit program.
The potential benefits of this program are:
- To develop a greater number of potential elite women’s coaches
- The opportunity to upskill and develop coaches in specific areas
- More nationally aligned coaches recruited and working within the daily training environment at state level, delivering nationally aligned training for athletes
- Greater levels of athlete monitoring and reporting and individual performance plan supervision and mentoring
- The opportunity for the program Head Coach to select tour coaching staff from the national coaching pool, aligning specific coaching skills to the tour/event requirement
Softball Australia is calling for expressions of interest for the 2018 Women’s Coaching Panel, for assistant coaches and specialist coaches, including battery, offensive and defensive coaches.
Those who are appointed to the panel may have the opportunity to be involved with the Aussie Spirit program in the lead up to the 2018 World Championships, potentially the first opportunity for the team to qualify for the 2020 Olympic Games. The first panel opportunity will be the 2018 Asia Pacific Cup to be held in Sydney from January 31st – February 4th.
To apply for the coaching panel, a minimum of Level 3 coaching accreditation is required and applicants must go to the below link and fill in the form:
