Coach and Manager
positions for Australian teams overseas in 1998/99

Skiing Australia Cross Country (SAXC) is in the process of organising the overseas program for the Australian cross country teams for the 1998/99 northern winter. At this stage no direct financial support is available for the teams, although sponsorship and funding is being sought from a number of sources including from business.

SAXC is proposing to send the following teams overseas:

· National senior team - men and women, the objectives are to

· National junior team - men and women, the objectives are to

· Development squad - men and women, with objectives of

Senior team: At this stage it is likely that the senior team will travel initially to North America to compete in US/Canada FIS races and then travel to Europe. Locations are under consideration - possibly Switzerland or Northern Italy.

The team will require a manager.

Junior team: This team will travel directly to Europe and train for the World Juniors. The team may be co-located with the senior team in Europe.

This team will probably need a coach and a manager.

Development squad: The squad and its program will be decided once the senior and junior teams are firmed up.

The possibility of North America with a coach/manager is one possibility.
