This year we are looking for coaches-in-residence in our Winter and in our Summer.

This is an exciting opportunity for young people to visit Australia and coach orienteering or make maps. You will live with local families and have fun orienteering.  We will help you with cash for your airfare and we will pay for most of your costs and entry fees.

This coach-in-residence programme started in 2012 and has proved very popular. A coach-in-residence usually stays for 6 months, and in some states this is a requirement, but any time from 3 to 12 months is possible.

Each year we will award several scholarships worth up to $1,500 cash and $1,000 in entry fees to talented enthusiastic persons to enjoy orienteering and coaching in Australia.

Applications are now open. You can arrive and leave at any time. Winter or Summer. We also have some paid positions all year for teaching in schools.

Teach our club members how to orienteer, teach our school kids how to read a map and enjoy friendly Australian hospitality.

All Applications are via the one central email address on the “Apply Here” page.
