Please explain your suitability to coach the regions you have applied for (e.g. connection/experience/commitment to that region, relevant logistical factors like transport/accommodation/willingness to travel) *
Would you be willing to have an assistant coach appointed to your team? *
An assistant coach is a coach that does not lead training but assists the coaches through tasks such as debating the team and providing feedback to the team. The assistant coaching pathway is aimed at providing meaningful opportunities for the development of younger coaches under more experienced coaches. Regional selection panels will appoint assistant coaches in consultation with the appointed coaches for each region.
