What’s involved ?
There are 5 great reasons why the position of a rugby coach is so incredibly important to the health of the game. You might be a parent whose child loves rugby, or a former player or even a current player who wants to give something back. Before you start we would encourage you to think about the age group you would like to coach. Our children start playing rugby from the age of 6 (year 2) up to 18. Before you can start working on your rugby coaching qualification, The RFU require that you do an IRB Start Coaching Rugby Ready course. The course only lasts about three hours, it’s all practical based, and there are no formal exams or coursework.
We will also need to complete a DBS check which is simply a case of providing us with a several forms such as passport, utility bill etc., and we will do the rest. Tewkesbury Tigers will ensure all our coaches have a DBS check and clearance to work with our children. We also encourage our coaches to attend Continual Professional Development courses to extend their knowledge and skill base.
