JWOC Training Squad Coach
Following the closure of nominations for the 2024 JWOC team on 20 January 2024, all nominees will be named as part of a JWOC training squad. Orienteering New Zealand now invites applications for the position of coach of that squad. This position will be responsible for training this squad until April when the full JWOC coach will take over the roll as coach following the selection of the 2024 JWOC Team.
The appointee will be expected to assist the athletes by
- Liaising with squad members over the setting of suitable training programmes and intermediate goals
- Monitor and advise on the progress of training
- Attend, if possible, all JWOC trials – expenses will be reimbursed by ONZ
- After selection of the team, work with team members to further their preparation for JWOC
There is no assumption that the appointee will be the travelling coach for JWOC. Applications for that position will be called for in early 2024.
