Coaches selected as State Squad Head Coaches will also act as a Head Coach for the subsequent year's Australian Championships State Team. This is to assist in creating a seamless pathway from club training and preparation to WA Team selection and fostering a supporting, positive environment for Team WA success. 

All club coaches and athlete personal coaches are strongly encouraged to attend State Squad activities to assist the Head Coaches in facilitating the session. Sessions will also act as development opportunities for coaches, nurturing a culture within the WA coaching cohort that is supportive, cooperative and collaborative. All coaches who attend State Squad sessions will receive updating points. 

Nominations for the Head Coach position are due by Friday October 28, 2022 (link to nominate below). No nomination is needed for any other coaches to be a part of the program.
