JCA Announcement: 
The Japan Cricket Association is pleased to invite applications for the position of National Team Coach within the JCA National Teams Program.  
Please read the full announcement and for people inerested, copy the application HERE>> and send it to Robb McKenna at: robbmckenna@hotmail.com 

The Japan Cricket Association is pleased to invite applications for the position of National Team Coach within the JCA National Teams Program.

The main responsibility of this position is the on-field performance of the Menís National Cricket Team, with a short term goal being success in the East Asia Pacific Tournament in Vanuatu in late September, 2005.

In consultation with the new coach, it is envisioned that a commitment to this position will include a total of 4 training camps in Fuji City, Shizuoka, leading up to the national menís team tour to Vanuatu, with an additional commitment of touring with the team to Vanuatu over 9 days in late September, 2005.

Key duties for this position will be:

1. Developing training programs for both individuals and the entire squad of players with the goal of improving individual skills, team play and general cricketing ability.  The ultimate goal is to have the most competitive team available and prepared for upcoming tournaments.
2. Performing the role of one of the selectors for the National team.  This role will be performed in conjunction with 3 other selectors on a 4-man selection panel.
3. Working closely with team management and the JCA to continue to improve national team processes and create an optimum team structure.
4. Working with other coaches to improve general coaching skills when required.
5. Media duties when required.

The core requirements for the coaching position are seen to be:

1. Significant documented and verifiable playing and coaching experience.
2. Superior management ability working with multiple nationalities in a competitive environment.
3. Ability to design individual and team plans working with a variety of experience and skill levels.
4. Keen sense and understanding of cross-cultural issues and ability to facilitate these into National team planning.

Note: Japanese ability is considered a plus, but is not seen as barrier to application for the position.  Coaches without Japanese ability will be given necessary support in this area.

An application form is attached which should be sent to Robb McKenna of the JCA Development Department at: robbmckenna@hotmail.com

Applications will be closed on January 15, 2005.  Interviews will be held either by phone or in person between January 17 and January 31.  It is hoped that the National team coaching position will be announced by February 1st, 2005
