Australian teams require a wide variety of Team Staff who can have a major impact on the collective and individual performance of the team. The number of Team Staff assigned to a representative competition and their roles and responsibilities depends on many factors including the team size; the age and experience of the athletes; the significance and location of the competition and the nature of the event (for example able‐bodied, junior or Para track and field events, walks, road running, cross country; or a mixture of all or some of these elements).
Expressions of interest from coaches and team officials for 2019 will be available soon on this page. Medical appointments are targeted through a separate process. However, if you are interested please email your CV to performance services.
Team staff positions are very limited, we expect more applications than team places so not every applicant in the Staff Pool will have an opportunities in 2019.
In general, Team Coaches and Team Managers are voluntary positions, however AA will provide appropriate accreditation and team uniform and will cover travel and accommodation costs for the tour.
Athletics Australia plans to send teams to the following international events in 2019.
IAAF World Cross Country Championships (Aarhus, DEN)
IAAF World Relays (Yokohama, JPN)
Oceania Area Championships (Townsville, AUS)
FISU World Universiade (Naples, ITA)
