Stage 1

This course is currently being revised for the 2016-17 season.

This course is specifically designed for coaches of Mini rugby (U8 - U12) where players are being introduced to rugby for the first time and participating in games of reduced numbers (8's, 10's and 12-a-side).

The focus is on safety & enjoyment with the coach acting as 'guide' in a player-centred process.

Developing players' all-round skills and game-understanding with an emphasis on Physical Literacy appropriate to the stages of development of each individual are the key technical, tactical & physical module objectives.

The course develops the coach as 'Guide'.
