England Performance Programme:  England Coaching Vacancies

England Korfball Head Coach 

England Korfball Academy Lead Coach

We are now in a position to appoint two key coaching leadership roles to guide the implementation of the new England Korfball Performance Performance Strategy

Culture and values are central to the future of the England programme and we want to appoint coaches that share the vision to be value driven.

The Performance Strategy sets out the plan for the next 8 years with an aspirational goal of winning a medal at the World Games and sustaining success.  To achieve this goal England Korfball will build an England Performance and Player Development Pathway with inclusive, quality assured player development environments that are built upon a player centred performance and learning culture.  International success at senior level will be produced from a consistent approach to development of players holistically for the benefit of England and the wider game. Critical to achieving our goal, will be the development of expert performance and talent coaches.

The future will require a cultural and mindset shift in how we develop players. A move from, a focus upon competition, to a focus upon player and coach development aided by competition. This will challenge our thinking, current beliefs, and culture.

The England Performance strategy is long-term, challenging, aspirational and addresses a wide scope of performance and player development. It will require clear focus upon the goal and prioritisation of resources and programmes. Fundamentally, it will require coaches, working in collaboration, and working with all parts of the governing body and clubs to ensure success.

Do you want to be part of the coaching leadership that will build a sustainable valued player development pathway. This is not about just coaching teams, this is about coaching a system.  If you want to be part of the coaching future we want to hear from you.

The England Head Coach and Academy Lead Coach appointments will be made for a period of 4 years.
