FAQ’S

What coaching positions are available to apply for?
Head Coach, Assistant Head Coach, Assistant Coach for
Forwards and Assistant Coach for Defense

What kind of experience is required to coach Team
USA Women’s Ball Hockey?
Coaches come from many different backgrounds. Coaches
that have coached high levels of youth or adult ice or ball
hockey are qualified to apply for the position.

Is this a paid position?
No, neither coaches nor players are paid. As ball hockey
continues to grow, we hope it grows to the point where
players and coaches can be paid for the amazing athletes
they are.

What is the time commitment as a coach?
Team USA comes together for a weekend once every few
months. During these weekends, coaches are on all weekend
getting to know the players and teaching the team their
expectations. There is a fair amount of preparation required
to plan these weekends well. During the ISBHF World
Championships, Team USA usually has one game per day and
goes to support the Men’s Team USA group in their games.

Why should I apply for this position?
The experience of representing your country is a once in a
lifetime opportunity. The World Championships tournament
is a high quality international tournament that is a privilege
to attend. In addition, the ball hockey community is an
impressive set of athletes that come together, play great
hockey, and have an amazing time together. As a coach, you
will be a part of something great.
