Become A Coach

Why coach?

According to the RFU “coaching rugby union is a rewarding and challenging way to spend your time. It is a great way of staying involved in the sport and helping to nurture the next generation of players. High quality coaching is central to recruiting and retaining players and developing the rugby skills and understanding of players at all levels”.

Getting started

As a new coach, you are advised to undertake one of the foundation courses such as the Rugby Leaders Award, Start Coaching Tag Rugby or the Start Coaching Rugby Ready Course and progress to taking the Level 1 Coaching Certificate which is the first level on the qualification pathway illustrated below.  Please note that before applying for a Level 1 coaching course you must have attended a Start Coaching Rugby Ready Course.

Coaches can also attend one of a range of Continuous Personal Development (CPD) courses which help practicing coaches develop a greater knowledge of the game.
