Two GB Softball teams need new Team Managers

Thu 15 Nov 2018

Two GB Fastpitch Softball Teams – the GB Under-18 Women’s Team and the GB Under-16 Women’s Team – are looking for new Team Managers.

Both teams will be playing in European Championship tournaments in 2019 and there are plans for both teams to also compete in the 2019 Canada Cup Tournament during the first half of July.

The GB Under-16 Women’s Team, currently ranked fifth in Europe, will change to an Under-15 age group after this year and will have an Under-15 European Championship in 2020.

The GB Under-18 Women’s Team competed through this year in an Under-19 age bracket and finished sixth in this year’s Under-19 European Championship.  This summer’s Under-18 European Championship will be a qualifier for a WBSC Under-18 Women’s World Cup in 2020.

The role

GB Softball Team Managers work as part of a staff group that includes the Head Coach, Assistant Coaches and a team physio or other medical personnel.

Primary duties include:

  • Acting as the centre for team communications to and from players and staff.
  • Liaising with tournament organisers and the GB Management Committee with regard to overseas tours.
  • Organising logistics for overseas tours (flights, accommodation, meals, internal transport, laundry etc).
  • Managing the team budget and accounts.
  • Organising team uniforms, clothing and equipment.

A full description of the job specifications for a GB Softball Team Manager can be found here.


All staff positions on GB Softball National Teams are voluntary; no one is paid a salary or fee.  However, all costs for staff members are covered when a national team goes abroad for competition, and some expenses connected with organising training and competition in the UK can also be claimed if necessary.

Anyone interested in applying for either position should start by filling out a GB Staff Application Form on this link:

The deadline for applications for these positions is 5.00 pm on Monday 26 November.
