Active Coach Badge (ACB)

Active Coach Badge (ACB)

This season the IRFU are launching the Active Coach Badge, following a pilot season last year. This is a CPD program to supplement coaching awards.

The IRFU ‘Active Mini Coach Badge’ and ‘Active Coach Badge’ courses are intended to provide coaches who have achieved the IRFU Children Coach, Youth Coach or Senior Coach Award(s), with ongoing continuing professional development (‘CPD’), i.e. information and opportunities to ensure that learning and development of your coaching skills continue throughout the season.

Commenting on this programme, Coach and Player Development Manager Keith Murphy said: “This is an exciting time for coach development in the IRFU. We have introduced a new Qualification process which is aligned to Rugby Connect and includes a suite of informal offerings for coaches to continue their personal development.

“These are both online and face-to-face offerings, providing coaches with CPD points which are aligned to their qualification.

“Coaches are encouraged to attend a coaching course and complete at least one CPD offering to attain their appropriate qualification. Each year thereafter the minimum requirement will be at least one CPD to maintain that qualification.”
