The South Sydney Rabbitohs are calling for applications for the Head Coaching position for the Harvey Norman NSW Women’s Premiership for season 2022.
All expressions of interest in, and applications for, the Head Coach position of the Women’s team should be sent directly to Head of Elite Pathways and Player Development, Joe O’Callaghan, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a cover letter, coaching CV and relevant qualifications. Applications close on Wednesday 22 September.
The Rabbitohs are also continuing to recruit for players in the open age women’s squad so any interested players should also contact Joe O’Callaghan on the above email address.
O’Callaghan paid tribute to previous Head Coach, Dean Widders.
“Dean did a great job for our Club as the Head Coach of the women’s team over the past few seasons under trying circumstances due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” O’Callaghan said.
“We were planning on having Dean as the Head Coach of our women’s team in 2022 however he has also earned himself the role of Head Coach of the Parramatta Eels’ NRLW team. The postponement of the 2021 NRLW competition until 2022 means it is virtually impossible for Dean to be able to do both roles with two different clubs at the same time and we have come to a mutual agreement to part ways at this current time. We will certainly be looking at ways in which Dean can contribute to our pathways programs throughout next season.
“Dean has made a fantastic contribution to this Club as a coach, player and with Souths Cares over many years and we wish him the best of luck with his NRLW side next season.
“We are excited about the season ahead for our women’s programs. Along with the open age women’s team we’ll also have teams in the under 19s Tarsha Gale Cup and under 17s Lisa Fiaola Cup. The pathways for female footballers continue down into the junior ranks with Souths Juniors running some outstanding competitions for girls of all ages in their age groups.
“We’re excited to see where these pathways take us over the next few years as we work towards an inaugural season in the NRLW competition in due time.”
