ACU is seeking high-quality coaches for its representative teams for the UniSport National to be held on the Gold Coast from 29 September - 3 October (Div 1). We are currently seeking a Softball coach for our Women's Team.
The UniSport Nationals Coach plays a key role in player selection, training, and guiding the team’s performance at the UniSport Nationals events. Coaches engaged to work with ACU teams need to display strong leadership skills and be passionate about developing our students as young men and women both on and off the field.
Coaches will be paid a $1,400 stipend for their attendance at the Nationals along with flights (where required), accommodation and some meals being provided. Training prior to Nationals will also be paid. Team will be required to arrive on the Sunday morning allowing for accommodation check-in, team meetings and training sessions to occur on Sunday. Competitions will generally commence on the Monday.
A unique challenge for ACU is that it is a national university with six campuses. Most teams will be made up of students from multiple campuses, therefore, training in person will not be possible for all students.
Coaches should consider how they can engage the whole team prior to Nationals without having met everyone in person.
A coach may be located in any city.
