VYS Travel Assistant Coach Application

running with the ballI am pleased to inform you we will be following a new process for the appointment of Assistant Coaches for season 2015/16 which has been confirmed in cooperation with the VYS Travel Committee.

I appreciate some may have completed applications and submitted previously. I apologize for making changes to the process but we are embarking on a new chapter and we are passionate about raising the standards to deliver a fantastic travel program.

Application Process

Due to a new philosophy and desire to provide support for coaches to deliver a high quality coaching environment consistent with our coaching  curriculum the process for appointing Assistant Coaches is as follows:

  • All Current Assistant Coaches and those wishing to be considered as Assistant Coaches are invited to two Coach Education Staff Training Events taking place on Monday 20th July and Wednesday 22nd July. In the event that persons can not attend they can still be considered and will be able to access the information via a PDF provided by the Head Coach.
  • At the Staff Training Events Assistant Coaches will indicate which teams they wish to be considered for.
  • After the Staff Training all potential Assistant Coaches are then invited to attend Travel practices which will commence from week beginning Monday 3rd August.
  • During these practices Head Coaches will start to work with potential coaches and conduct an informal short interview at the field.
  • Head Coaches will provide feedback to Assistant Technical Directors and then Assistant Coaches will be appointed.
