Swiss Triathlon can look back on some very successful sporting years, and the National Federation is determined to continue this sporting success in future Olympic Games cycles. Looking ahead of Tokyo 2020 Olympics, Swiss Triathlon is looking for a National Coach for the Elite and U23 athletes, to be based in the National Training Center of Wallisellen, in Switzerland, and to start in March 2018, although the date could be arranged in a different way.
As the National Coach for Elite and U23, you will be responsible for Swiss Triathlon’s elite athlete squads. Together with the National Coach for Juniors, you will be in charge of the national training centre in Wallisellen and will be responsible for setting daily training routines.
Working in partnership with local trainers, you will help athletes in the squads who are at the transitional stage to reach international performance standards. You will plan and manage top-quality training programmes for the national team and look after the athletes at international competitions.
