Expressions of Interest are now open for the following 3 Golf Croquet squads for the 2019-20 season: State Squad, State Support Squad (which replaces the Development Squad), and the Development Group.
Please send an Expression of Interest to Martin Clarke before November 10th 2019. Selectors will pick the State Squad and the State Support Squad from the list of expressions. If you are not selected into either of these squads you will automatically be placed into the Development Group. You can also express an interest for the Development Group only. The Development Group will be coached by Matthew Whitfield. Venues and times will be finalised based on the makeup of the group.
The two higher squads will be coached by Martin Clarke. Dates are already in the Croquetwest calendar, some venues are yet to be finalised.

Applications are invited, from suitably qualified coaches (current Level 1), for the position of Croquetwest AC State Development Coach.
The AC Development Squad is selected annually and generally consists of 5 or 6 early career players who are seen to have development potential. The AC Development Squad Coach is expected to assist this group to reach their potential and improve their playing skills. This is generally done in the form of “coaching days” where the group meets to undertake exercises and playing under coaching supervision. The appointed coach will be encouraged to determine their own regime, best suited to the group.
Interested coaches should contact Sandra Stevenson (0414 789 920), Croquetwest State Coaching Director, for discussion and further details, preferrably by 30th October 2019.
