Team BC Coaching

The BCPA would like to provide BC athletes the opportunity to work with a Team BC coach during the week of Nationals, or the Team BC coach will recommend or provide a coach (handler) for the athlete for their session.

If you’re an athlete looking for a coach – stay tuned!

In order to do this we’re looking for two coaches – one head coach and one assistant coach. You must be available the entire week of CPU Nationals (February 13-18), although you may not be required for every session. If you’re competing, that’s ok, we will still consider your application.

If this interests you keep on reading!

The current BCPA bylaws currently prohibit us from paying more than 50% of expenses of the Team BC head coach. This is something the BCPA Board of Directors would like to change at the next BCPA AGM on Saturday February 4th, 2023. Anyone who’s been to Nationals before as an athlete or coach knows how much time and effort goes into coaching and handling athletes all week and we believe that our volunteers should be reimbursed fairly for their efforts. We encourage anyone reading this to attend the AGM and vote to change this policy. You can register for the AGM from our calendar.

19:04 Head Coaches of BCPA Provincial teams at National competitions shall be eligible for reimbursement of up to 50% of their travel and accommodation expenses, subject to availability of funding from the Society.
