Team Coach and Manager

It is a big responsibility and privilege to accompany a PCA team. Responsibilities commence from the date of your appointment and conclude some time after your return. The Coach and Manager roles are awarded to Pony Club members with the requisite experience, personal attributes and skills. PCA is committed to selection based on merit, and to succession planning in these national leadership roles. A person cannot fulfil an international team role more than 3 times. Applications from across Australia are encouraged.

The direct costs of your travel (airfare from closest capital city, tour costs, uniform, insurance) will be covered.

The Coach or Manager cannot be related to a team member (e.g. parent, step-parent, guardian, sibling).

The Coach and Manager work as a team, to ensure that the riders/competitors have the best, safest and most successful experience possible, whilst upholding the impeccable reputation of Pony Club Australia.
