Applications for coaching, assistant coaching, managerial and referee positions with Wollongong Touch Association for the 2019 New South Wales Touch Association Junior State Cup are now open.

The 2019 NSWTA Junior State Cup Southern Conference will be held in Wagga Wagga, at the Jubilee Fields from Friday 22nd February to Sunday 24th February, 2019. Qualifying teams will then play in the State Finals, at a date and place to be determined.

WTA hopes to send teams from boys and girls under 10s to boys and girls under 18s to the Junior State Cup, and Southern Suns Junior Regionals (date and location TBA) in the lead-up to the February tournament.

Coaches must have the required NSWTA accreditation and a valid Working With Children reference. Proof of both of these should be included in coaching application.

Referees should advise whether they are able to attend any of the events.

Applicants will be judged on experience, willingness to fulfill their coaching obligations through training and trials, and their ability to address Wollongong Touch Association’s key ethical guidelines. The WTA Technical panel will meet to make appointments in August.

  • Level of qualification?
