GB Senior Men’s Team looking for Head Coach

Wed 6 Jan 2021

The British Softball Federation is seeking applications for the position of Head Coach for the GB Senior Men’s Fastpitch Team.

The team is currently ranked fourth in Europe and plans to compete this summer in the European Men’s Championship from 21-26 June in Ledenice in the Czech Republic, with a highest-ever total of 12 teams having entered the competition.

Applications are also being invited for Assistant Coach positions on the team – for more information on this, see below.


New direction

The Federation is looking for a Head Coach who will help take the GB Senior Men’s Fastpitch Team programme in a new direction, with more emphasis on selecting, training and playing British-based players.  However, overseas-based players with a British passport or the eligibility to acquire one are still welcome to trial for the team.

Anyone applying for the Head Coach position who is based outside the UK will be expected to travel to Britain on a regular basis (once the state of the Covid-19 pandemic makes this possible) to work with players in the UK and develop links between the Senior Men’s Team and the GB Under-23 and Under-18 programmes.

The deadline for applying for this position expired at midnight on 20 January 2021, but anyone still interested in the position is invited to contact BSF National Teams Officer Alexis Markham-Hill on nto@britishsoftball.org.


How to apply

Anyone interested in applying for the position should complete the application form on this link: https://forms.gle/xSD4orJ5kCqNtYJq8.

Any questions about the position should be sent to Alexis Markham-Hill on nto@britishsoftball.org.

A full job description for a GB Softball Head Coach can be found on the BSF website here.

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

Further information and references will be required and shortlisted candidates will be interviewed in person or electronically as circumstances allow.


Assistant coaches

Applications are also invited for Assistant Coach positions for the GB Senior Men’s Team, including specialist positions such as hitting or pitching coaches.

Anyone interested in applying to be an Assistant Coach with this team should complete the application form on the link given above, specifying the role you are applying for.

Any questions about the Assistant Coach positions should be sent to BSF National Teams Officer Alexis Markham-Hill on nto@britishsoftball.org.
