The RFU have funded 7 of our coaches to undertake the Level 2 Coaching Course. The RFU is working in partnership with QBE, the business insurance specialist, to increase the quantity and quality of rugby coaching in England. The 7 taking part are Tim Hayward, Julian Collard, Ian Pearson, Alexander Spratt, Calum Tavender-Tait, John Young and Alastair Murray.
From the RFU:
”As we look ahead to hosting the Rugby World Cup in 2015, it provides a huge opportunity for us to grow the game. Coaching is one of the most crucial factors in developing, sustaining and increasing participation in rugby union, so it’s important we build this capacity in communities across England now.
The QBE Coaching Club has been established to recruit and train 2,015 new level 2 coaches by September 2015, delivered through dedicated RFU run courses. Participants will be recruited through a network of regional teams, based on their commitment to coaching beyond 2015.
We will be working with a group of coach educators to train the new level 2 coaches, providing a consistent approach across the QBE Coaching Club. The course will take a holistic approach, equipping coaches with both the practical and personal skills needed to develop players both on and off the pitch.
If you’re interested in taking part and committing to community coaching beyond 2015, please email QBECC@rfu.com.”
