Team Alberta Coach/Manager Positions for the 2019 Canada Winter Games
Background: Red Deer, Alberta will host the next Canada Winter Games. The speed skating competition at the 2019 CWG will be from February 14-23, 2019 and will include both Long and Short Track disciplines. Team Alberta Speed Skating will consist of four male and four female long track athletes, five female and five male short track athletes and a coach and manager for each of the two speed skating disciplines.
Process: Prospective coaches may be asked for an interview and discussion about matters pertinent to the CWG. These interviews would be conducted by AASSA’s CWG Committee members.
Requirements: As per the CWG technical package (see below), all CWG Coaches must be a minimum fully certified NCCP Comp Dev coach in the sport of speed skating which must be obtained no later than ninety (90) days prior to the opening of the Games. Exceptions must be approved by SSC and the Canada Games Council. Managers need not be NCCP Level 3 certified, however greater consideration may be given to those applicants with higher NCCP certification as only managers with Intro to Comp certification or higher will be allowed in the field of play.
The sport of speed skating has been allocated two staff per discipline (one Long Track coach, one Long Track manager, one Short Track coach and one Short Track manager). Both short and long track staff must be comprised of one male ad one female staff. Greater consideration will be given to those coaches who have worked with the potential Alberta team athletes or who have experience coaching at the Canada Games or high performance level.
It will be expected that the named managers or coaches for Team Alberta will participate in any CWG team activities prior to the CWG. Such activities would include training camps and competitions including the athlete selection events.
