VCC looking for head coach

Vacature-vacancyVCC is one of the bigger cricket clubs in The Netherlands and plays at the beautiful Wetsvliet ground where it has three grounds, one of which has a grass wicket (7 strips). Moreover, with a junior department that consists of more than 100 members (boys and girls) there is a strong foundation.

VCC 1 and VCC 2 is a group of young talented players that are looking for an experienced (playing or non-playing) coach that can help them improve their game. Although traditionally we look for overseas candidates, the VCC Board wants to offer anybody interested in The Netherlands the opportunity too to express his or her interest. In terms of continuity this may even be a very interesting option.
The coach will be contracted for the 2016 season. It would be a recommendation if he can also be available for the (latter part of the) winter period.
