At this point in time the NLTTA is seeking expressions of interest from individuals who are interested in being regional coaches. Coaches must be at least 19 years of age by January 1, 2024. Being at least Introduction to Competition trained in Table Tennis through the NCCP Canadian Coaching program would be an asset, but not necessarily mandatory. All team staff must provide a current Criminal Record Check/Vulnerable Sector Check as well as complete the Safe Sport Training Module and the Rule of Two Module (both of which are offered for free through Sport NL) prior to the start of the Games (these items are mandatory requirements of Sport NL and the NL Games). Coaches would also be responsible for planning and running a qualifying tournament in their region to select team members prior to January 27, 2024.
Any individual who is interested in being a regional coach should contact Kenny Curlew at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 30, 2023. In your email, please include the region you would be interested in coaching and list relevant coaching experience and training that you have. If you have any questions please reach out Kenney Curlew at email@example.com
