The ‘selection statement’ helps those assessing applications to make a more informed and fairer decision.   A selection panel will be responsible for assessing applications for the Head Coach position and will present a recommendation to the Lacrosse SA Board.

The selected Head Coach will then have the opportunity to work with relevant Lacrosse SA stakeholders to appoint further team personnel to required positions – it is recommended that the applicant ensure any preferred team personnel also apply at the same time and identify those applicants within the application process.  Lacrosse SA may also choose to recruit candidates by other means if it feels it is in the best interest of the team, sport or Lacrosse SA.   For further information about the positions please contact the Lacrosse SA Office (
