Munster Rugby will deliver several coaching courses again this Autumn for coaches at mini, youth and advanced levels.
The courses are designed to support coach learning and development with a specific focus on developing the coach, player and game.
There are eight courses announced, four each at mini and youth levels to accommodate coaches across the province.
The Coaching Children Course (mini rugby) is designed to support coaches of U6-U12 age groups and focuses on the coach acting as a guide to enhance the players understanding of the game whilst integrating fun and inclusivity.
The Youth Coaching Course is designed to support coaches of U13-U16 age groups and also coaches who are new to coaching 15-a-side rugby.
Registration is now open and can be accessed here.
Announcing this season’s schedule of courses, Munster Rugby Coach and Player Development Manager Keith Murphy said:
“We are delighted to be announcing this season’s coaching courses. Covid restricted our approach in coach development regarding face-to-face activities and challenged our traditional coach development methodology.
“It is great to see such a quick transition into blended learning and supporting coaches continuous learning and development.”
“This season will see a further evolvement of our eLearning system, GAINLINE, and the implementation of more short pre-course modules. In addition, we will look at delivering more face-to-face events to ensure we build on the coach’s development and maintain their active badge criteria.”
