Team Canada Orienteering is looking for coaches for WOC and JWOC 2023

Orienteering Canada is seeking experienced coaches to support athletes at WOC in Switzerland from July 11th-16th and at JWOC in Romania from July 2nd to July 9th. 

These roles are part of building our support staff and structure for our small but growing Team Canada Program. We are looking for coaches that have an interest in being a part of that growth and working with a team that is looking to the future. Coaches will be expected to model Team Canada’s values for athletes to help build a positive team culture. 

The work itself will take place in Switzerland or Romania during the WOC or JWOC where the coach will support the athletes directly and indirectly before, during, and after the races and in the ‘prep-week’ leading up to the races. During the prep week coaches are responsible for providing and leading training sessions designed to prepare the athletes as best as possible for the championships.

These are volunteer positions with an honorarium to be paid after the event and all expenses reimbursed by Orienteering Canada. Both roles come with opportunities for further work with Orienteering Canada in the future.  

Interested applicants should send an email with their resume to by April 10th. Emails should indicate which role(s) they would be interested in and include a coverletter explaining their background and why they are interested in the role. Interviews will take place between April 10th and April 17th. If we have not identified a suitable candidate the position will remain open until we do so.
