In 2019 Netball Central Zone’s (NCZ) performance vision to become the pre-eminent netball zone in the country was reached when we won both the Beko and ANZ Premiership. In 2020 the goal remains.  With the retirement of our outstanding current coach at the end of the 2020 campaign, we are now seeking a new Head Coach to lead us through the new challenges that await us in the future. 

Opportunities to coach an ANZ Premiership team are rare.   This is an enormously exciting role to work with some of the best netballers in the world and to make your unique contribution to the ongoing legacy of excellence with the best netball team in the country.

The successful applicant will develop, implement and lead a world class netball programme capable of preparing the Pulse for consistent success.  The Coach will lead the Pulse on and off the court to the highest possible standard of playing performance and professionalism, enhancing our brand and place in our community.

We are looking for an experienced elite level coach, tactically astute, with a sound knowledge of the technical aspects of the game and a proven track record of success in preparing elite players for high level competition.   The successful applicant will also be experienced in planning, developing and implementing a programme and demonstrate a strong understanding of all the component parts of a high performance environment.   Other competencies include the ability to build an effective team, a real drive for results, the ability to size people up and motivate them, remaining composed under stress and being a trusted member of the netball community.

Ideally applicants will have either head coached at international level (either at Under 21 level or senior) and/or ANZ Championship/ Premiership level.

If you are interested in applying for this role, please request the Pulse Head Coach Position Description and then forward a cover letter and CV to the Performance Director, Netball Central Zone, P.O.
