The Japan Cricket Association are today opening applications for the position of High Performance Manager to join our staff full time at the Head Office in Sano City, Tochigi.

The primary role of the High-Performance Manager is to develop National Teams and players that inspire the next generation of players and fans.

1. Develop, Run, and Monitor High Performance Programs for the Japanese National Squads (Men, Women & Academy/Under 19), while being Head Coach for one of the squads.
2. Providing Fee-For-Service coaching programs within the community to ensure there are funds coming into the JCA via expert delivery.
