Athletic Development Course Held For Club And Schools Coaches

Last month, Munster Rugby held a World Rugby Conditioning For Youths Level 1 Athletic Development course for club and school coaches throughout the province, in association with Setanta College.

The face-to-face course was held at the Munster Rugby High Performance Centre at the University of Limerick and the presenters included Des Ryan, Director of Coaching and Performance Setanta College and Antoine Mobian, tutor with Setanta College.

The coaches taking part in the face-to-face course had completed online pre-course content with World Rugby. All of those in attendance enjoyed the day and many outlined their intention to progress further on the Conditioning for Rugby Learning Pathway.

The course is designed to provide coaches with a basic knowledge and understanding and a foundation of practical skills with regards to conditioning practices for the youth rugby player.

The course consists of 5 modules:

  • Long term athlete development
  • Functional screening
  • Game demands, warm-up, and recovery
  • Preparing for resistance training
  • Speed and agility

The coaches in attendance work throughout the province including schools, senior clubs, junior clubs, age-grade clubs and women’s teams.
