Additional Applicant Considerations

BBI aims to match the experience, skills, knowledge, competence, values and capabilities of the coach with the athlete needs and the coaching context. Every care is taken to avoid deploying coaches who might mistakenly wish to be associated with athletes in the context for which their skills, knowledge and competence are not suited (i.e. a performance coach who wants to work with athletes in a participation context but does not understand the contextual difference between the two coaching contexts). As there are only 10 Performance Coach for Older Adolescent and Adult positions available in the Brisbane Capitals Performance Program (QBL, SBL, U21, U18 Gold and U16 Gold) BBI applies a deployment strategy to prevent coaches being appointed to more than one Head Coach position of these teams. This strategy is in place in order to provide BBI’s many talented and capable Performance Coaches the opportunity to lead a team matching their skills and capabilities. An additional consideration for coach deployment across all the Junior Talent Confirmation teams (U12 – U18 Gold teams) is the consideration to avoid the selection of a coach to these teams who has an identified conflict of interest (i.e. parent or sibling). Exceptions to this strategy may occur due to exceptional coaching talent as determined by the Coach Selection Panel, or on occasion of need.
