4month slalom club coach job in New Zealand

Post by campbell » Mon May 28, 2018 3:48 pm

Canoe Slalom Bay of Plenty are a slalom specific club operating out of Tauranga, New Zealand. Which is where the majority of the current NZ team paddlers originate from.
They need a temporary club coach, paid position, approx 30hr per week, for the next 4months. Yes, starting pretty much immediately (a couple of potential applicants fell through).
The club is well run, with enthusiastic kids and a great parent volunteer group. Tauranga is a very nice place to live.
Would be an ideal opportunity for an experienced paddler or coach to have a "working holiday" trip to visit New Zealand. Please see below....
