Call for applications: SA junior coach

At the 2013 AGM, the SASDB governing body voted in a new measure to introduce a national junior team. The junior team will function much the same way as the SA team, including a trials process and the attendance of one international tournament. A junior trialists squad was selected at SANSDC 2013 by the main selection panel.

This is a call for applications for the position of the South African Junior National Coach. The coach will be responsible for selecting and coaching the 2014 junior team, and taking them to an international tournament.

To apply, applicants are required to submit:
1) A debating CV and brief motivation;
2) An outline of their plans for the next 2 years (where they’ll be,
what they’ll be doing, etc);
3) A coaching plan outlining their ideas for training sessions, etc.
4) A letter of motivation, including their thoughts on coaching and being responsible for young children (grade eights and nines).

The NEC will then vote on the applications we receive and the appointment will be announced before Friday 7 February. Please send can this to whoever else you think will be interested. We are really hoping to receive as many high level applications as we can!
