A Munster Under 17 combined selection of players from the Regional Development Squad and Munster 'B' Schools recently attended a 11 a-side blitz at Cork Institute of Technology grounds.
Thirty eight coaches were selected for the three day course and the standard of applicants was high which led to a successful course and a great weekend. Tutors for the course included the National Coaching Development Officer, Colin Moran, Munster Rugby Set-Piece Coach Brian Hickey, the Munster Rugby Elite Development Officer, Ian Costello, and the Munster Youths Head Coach, Philip Rees.
In order to complete their IRFU Level 1 Accreditation, the applicants will go on to attend a Level 1 Link course, log 40 hours of coaching and finally have a coaching session observed by an RDO.
We look forward to the next Level 1 Coaching Course which takes place in Cork in August.
