Last night our new Young Coaches attended Gravesend Rugby Club for the presentation of their certificates and hoodies.
The Kent Young Coaches Certificate is a new initiative run this season as a pilot for 14-18 year old to start on their coaching journey.
The young coaches had 5 face to face sessions with the Kent Rugby coaching development team where they learned the fundamental skills of coaching and completed 2 RFU CPDs, this is on top of a minimum of 8 hours coaching within their clubs.
Some of the young coaches are looking ahead towards the England Rugby Coaching Award to further their coaching knowledge and have used this programme as a step towards completing that award.
Due to its success, we are hoping to run the programme again next season. Information will be released towards the start of the new season.
If anyone has any questions regarding the programme, please contact Dan Phimister, Chair of the Coaching & Refereeing Development Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org
