Introduction

There are two main strands to developing your skills as a coach. One is Coach Education, the
second is Coach Development.

The two go hand in hand and to become a successful coach you will need to participate in both.

Coach Education courses are the nationally recognised coaching awards. These all involve some
form of assessment which will result in an RFU Coaching Qualification.

Coach Development Seminars are designed to further your knowledge within a particular area, e.g.
Line-out play or introducing contact.

These courses are not assessed and do not result in a coaching qualification.

Rugby Ready

The rugby ready course is the definitive health and safety course for contact rugby, and as such is
a “must” for all aspiring coaches. The course is designed by the IRB. The practical course content
includes
           • Technical Aspects of the Game
           • Tackle
           • Taking the ball into contact
           • Scrum
           • Line-out
           • Maul
           • Ruck

The course costs £18 and includes resources. The course can be delivered at your local club, with
the minimum being 14 on the course.
