 EPC INTERVIEWS FOR HEAD COACHES FOR U16 MEN and U16 WOMEN

FOR FIBA EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS FROM 2018/19 SEASON

The Elite Performance Committee (EPC) of Basketball Ireland is seeking to appoint two voluntary International Head Coaches for the Ireland Under 16 Men's and Women's squads who will take up their positions on September 1st, 2018 on a rolling appointment.

The EPC seeks to move away from annual interviews, and is introducing a concept of rolling appointments. This means that the appointees will have a review with the EPC after each tournament but will remain in position for three FIBA tournaments at that level, if the review is satisfactory and the Head Coach wishes to remain in place.

After three tournaments there will be an open interview process to which the existing Head Coach may apply to be re-appointed.

The EPC feels that this maximises accumulated experience and knowledge at this level instead of starting afresh every year.

Therefore, applications for International Head Coach roles are now invited.

Applications for the positions, including a cover note with a coaching philosophy statement and a CV, should be sent by email to the Secretary General at bobyrne@basketballireland.ie no later than close of business on Monday, February 19th.

Interviews will take place in Dublin during the day of Wednesday, February 28th. It is not envisaged that any other date can be accommodated as some of the interview panel are travelling from abroad.

A similar process will be carried out for the Under 18 Men and U18 Women's Head Coaches in August/September of this year.
