Assistant Technical Directors Roles Created

17 JUN 2015 | BY CAMPBELL BALLANTYNE


At a recent committee meeting it was decided that a key goal for the coming months is to use the NPL junior coaching standards as a guideline to improve and educate our own coaches. Regardless of weather or not our NPL junior application is successful we have decided that striving towards these standards in coach education will be industry best practise and result in an optimum experience for our members.

As a result a key first step is to recruit 3 assistant technical directors to support Ian Morris in his role. You can find the details of the positions on our positions vacant page on our website and we are interested in applicants.
