Alun Rossiter will remain in charge of Team Great Britain for the 2017 season.
Rossiter, who led the team to a silver medal behind Poland in this year's World Cup final at Belle Vue in July, will be at the helm for a fourth successive season.
And he is already planning pre-season training for the riders and members of the U21 contingent.
Rossiter said: "I'm proud and honoured to be appointed for a fourth season and I would like to thank the promoters for putting their faith in me once again.
"I'm very pleased to get confirmation of this and I will be doing everything I can to help make us a success.
"I certainly think we can make the race-off in Poland. It's nice to be back at King's Lynn on July 1, although the silver medal we won at Belle Vue last summer was a very special moment."
GB will face Australia, USA and Czech Republic in Event 1 on Saturday, July 1 next year - but they will be without double world champion Tai Woffinden who has stood down from the national team.
"Without Tai we have to move on," said Rossiter. "We will have a group of riders who want to wear the race jacket with pride and it will be a true team effort, just like it was at Belle Vue.
"It gives somebody else the chance to step forward and represent their country."
