Coaches are our heartbeatPre-requisite to being a coach at QDNC is loving kids, having heaps of energy and a passion for sport. We expect our coaches to help bring the values of QDNC, with a key role being to gel our teams and give each player a sense of belonging to the team and club.Some of our coaches are parents who coach kids playing in their teams, others are club appointed accredited coaches and we also have a group of junior coaches who can be a trainee coach or an assistant coach prior to turning 18 when they can join as a coach.We are always on the look out for individuals who love to grow our players skill levels, can enthuse our players to do their best and represent our club values.
Managers are our savioursThey keep everyone informed, they organise rosters, they track attendance, they fill in or check complicated scorecards, they are appointed photo takers and they fix up our kids should they get injured on court! It is a varied and rewarding role!We seek managers out at the beginning of the season when teams are released.
Umpires are our rock starsQDNC umpires support a safe, enjoyable and fair environment when it comes to our players competingQDNC appoint trainee umpires each year through green shirt programs (13 and over). This enables us to give members the opportunity to develop new skills like communication, leadership, accepting responsibility and resilience. Great attributes to add to your resume!Our umpires job satisfaction and self-confidence is important to us so our coaches, managers and committee members encourage a zero tolerance to members, players or officials being anything other than courteous and respectful to them.
