Developing Rugby Coaches (DRC) Course

The Developing Rugby Coaches (DRC) course is a series of practical / technical Coaching Workshops split into modules, aimed at developing rugby knowledge and providing coaches with ‘best practice’ methods and how to apply that knowledge in the rugby coaching environment.

This course is run in a series of one-hour modules throughout the year. Coaches that wish to attend DRC but do not want to complete the whole course can attend any module of their choice.

A coach will receive credit for attendance for each module (each module is approx 1 hour) attended and these details will also go into the NZRU database to confirm your attendance at portions of the course. Attending modules will provide for individual up-skilling and we believe it is a great opportunity to enhance the skills of a coach.

To obtain the FULL Level 2 Coaching Certificate, coaches will have to attend all of the 4 scheduled evening modules along with the full day of practical coaching and will also be practically assessed by BOPRU at your team’s training sessions. Coaches will also need to complete a Rugby Laws Test and complete a coaching log / diary showing 50 hours of practical planning and coaching.

Bay of Plenty Rugby Union Coach Development Manager will facilitate these courses, there will be a range of specialist coaches involved in presenting the various modules to attendees.

Modules include:

  • Roles of a Coach
