If funding is secured Yachting New Zealand is looking to employ three full time coaches
Yachting New Zealand writes:
"If Yachting New Zealand secures sufficient funding we would like to contract three coaches full time next summer over the following disciplines: single handed, double handed and boards coach - one of who will be appointed Head Coach in August 2001.
Yachting New Zealand Academy Coaching Programme - plans for next year Planning for next summer's programme (October 2001 to June 2002) is well underway and Yachting New Zealand has submitted a funding application to the NZ Sports Foundation to provide funding for coaching support of Olympic class sailors to assist grow the fleets of sailors aspiring to represent New Zealand at Olympic and international regattas.
We hope to secure the services of three World class coaches again this year and are looking for suitable persons with considerable coaching experience at the highest level. In addition we believe it is important to extend the period of coaching and provide the opportunity to contract coaches full time from October to June for weekly coaching from an Academy base in Auckland, New Zealand. Coaches would be expected to travel with sailors to relevant World championships, international regattas and other key events during this period.
The Head Coach position is likely to be a full-time 12-month contract. These positions will become available in September/October if sufficient funding is confirmed from the NZ Sports Foundation in early July.
Please note this is a call for expressions of interest - the details of each position will be confirmed to potential applicants once funding is confirmed. Those interested in the potential positions are asked to register their interest along with a resume of relevant coaching experience to Yachting New Zealand's High Performance Manager, Peter Lester(firstname.lastname@example.org) before June 30.
In addition we would be interested to hear from coaches that may be able to contract themselves for shorter periods of time in New Zealand to support the programme."
