As preparations begin for a new Olympic cycle, British Basketball are looking to recruit Head Coaches for the men's and women's programmes to take the team through to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. The roles will be part time, focusing primarily on the summer international season. Key targets will be to maintain and improve Great Britain's current standing in Europe with a longer term goal of qualifying for Rio in 2016.
Chris Spice, Performance Director for GB Basketball, believes the programme has a great opportunity to make the London Olympics just the start for the sport in Great Britain.
'The 2012 Games were a fantastic catalyst for the sport, but we see this as very much the beginning for the programme, not the end. We plan to invest more than ever before, have a wider pool of talent to choose from, and have world class players competing every week in the best leagues in the world''.
'The head coaches will have a proven track record in international basketball and understand what it takes to move us up the world rankings. We are looking for inspirational leaders, good communicators and teachers, and coaches who are able to relate to our players and build an outstanding performance culture that is required to succeed at the highest levels of our sport. "
The cycle to 2016 promises to be an exciting time for British Basketball, and interested candidates can download the full job descriptions from www.gameongb.com with the closing date for applications 12pm GMT on Wednesday 21st November 2012.
