Vacancy – Head Coach Arthur Ashe Development Centre


Tennis South Africa (TSA) will shortly be launching a Growthpoint development centre at the historic Arthur Ashe tennis facility in Soweto. This development centre is the first of two to be launched in Gauteng in 2018.
This new centre will be centrally funded by TSA and will have six key focus areas:
Collaborating with, and providing coaching support, to existing tennis development projects in the region.
Working with the Province to create new tennis development hubs in the region.
Providing coaching mentorship and education support to coaches at development projects in the region.
Collaborating with target schools in the area to provide coaching support and tennis opportunities for learners at those schools.
Talent identification and long-term player development planning for talented juniors – especially those from under-served communities.
A high-performance squad programme for talented junior players – either on a full-time or part-time basis.
The head coach, with support from an assistant coach, the province and TSA head office, will be required to fulfil all the above focus areas as part of his/her day to day responsibilities. The head coach will also be involved in over-seeing the second centre elsewhere in Gauteng. In short – we are looking for a person who has plenty of energy, a strong work ethic and is comfortable working across both grassroots tennis coaching, as well as high performance junior tennis coaching. This role is intended for someone who has a passion to grow tennis across Soweto.
Should you feel you are a suitable and qualified candidate for this role, then please send your CV and a covering letter to: Applications close at 3pm (SA time) on Friday 2nd March 2018.
