Coaching for your association is a unique and honorable opportunity.
Coaches are required to nominate, in order to be appointed to a tournament.
Once nominated, they will be contacted by BWHA in regards to their availability for the applicable player selection trials.
Where possible, they will be required to participate in coaching the player selection trials, i.e. if one nominates for U14’s, they will coach the BWHA U14 Selection Trials.
Coaches that participate in the selection trials will be eligible for payment.
Nominations are considered by a panel of selectors, and coaches are ranked based on their experience, accreditation and competency. There is also consideration given to an individual coaches pathway, i.e. where they best fit in order to continue their coaching development.
Appointments are advised by the ‘Representative Teams’ document located at http://www.bwha.com.au/representative-teams/, along with the player appointments.
Appointed coaches will receive an appointment letter from BWHA which contain relevant and important information, including training times and equipment loan.
Reward for services is determined by the nature and location of the tournament. While some tournaments will offer accommodation and meals, others will offer fuel allowances.
