2012 World Cup Captains: Applications Now Being Taken

Post by BFA Committee » Tue Mar 29, 2011 2:22 pm

The BFA Committee would like to officially announce that we are now accepting applications for the following positions within the 2012 Great Britain World Cup squad:

-Men's Team Captain

-Women's Team Captain

-Senior Team Captain


If you would like to apply to be considered for one of these roles then please send a personal message to this account by pressing the "PM" button to the right of this message. Applications will close on the 15th of April. The BFA Committee will then deliberate to decide the best candidates and publish the results in due course.

To be considered for the Men's team you must be male.
To be considered for the Women's team you must be female.
To be considered for the Senior team you must be over 50 years old.

You may apply for more than one position if you are eligible.

The 2012 World Cup will take place in Nantes, France on January 5th to 8th. Do not apply if you are not prepared to go to Nantes.

Should you be selected as captain you will have the following tasks:

-Selecting the rest of the squad.
-Finding a team coach.
-Preparing the team well in advance.
-Organising logistics for the team.
-Securing the best possible result for your team at the World Cup.

The ideal captain:

-is a leader,
-is a skilled table football player,
-has international playing experience,
-knows other potential GB team players well,
-is organised,

but above all, will be there. The most important attribute of a good captain is being there. Please only apply if you are certain that you will go to the World Cup if you are selected.

We are not currently taking any applications for the Junior team.

If there are any questions please either post in this thread or send a personal message to this account.

Regards,

The BFA Executive Committee

Thank you very much to those of you that have submitted applications for these positions. We currently have a selection of candidates for each role and will consider them, along with any additional candidates that we receive before the deadline, shortly after applications close.

I remind you that the deadline for submitting applications is noon on the 15th of April.

This coming week is therefore the only period in the year in which you may stand for captaincy of these teams, as no applications will be considered after the closing date. This effectively means that captaincy of the respective Great Britain table football team is yours until January 2012, should you be selected.

Regards,

The BFA Executive Committee

Is this just for the WC next Jan, or is it for the Nation's Cup events at WCS tournaments this year as well? The second post made it sound more like the latter; was this intentional?

If the captain was not attending some given Nation's Cup, presumably somebody who was would be able to decide the team, the pairings etc.?

Ideally, I'd have thought the World Cup captain(s) should expect to compete in at least one Nations Cup competition, preferably all of them.

Applications are now closed. We will now begin the process of deliberating upon the candidates and selecting a captain for each role. We expect to have selected a captain for each team by May.
