David Pearson is National Sailing Coach
Yachting New Zealand Appoint Paralympic Coach
Paralympics New Zealand has launched its campaign for the 2004 Paralympic Games by appointing a number of coaches to monitor and direct the training and performance of athletes over the next three years.
David Pearson has been appointed National Sailing Coach. These volunteer positions will ensure a comprehensive build up is planned and the funding allocated to each sport is used effectively. Following on from the success of the New Zealand Team in Sydney the challenge is to have an even more successful team in Athens. The coaches appointed are an integral part of plans for 2004. They will be working to ensure athletes are adequately supported and prepared for a successful campaign. All coaches will work closely with the Academy of Sport and also work towards establishing closer relationships with the Head Coach of able-bodied sports.
