All coaches and assistant coaches who are involved with teams from Secondary School Rugby upwards (Under 14 and above) are required to attend a Rugby Smart Coaching Workshop every season. NZRU Policy makes this course compulsory.
Rugby Smart has evolved into a very valuable resource for Rugby Coaches of all levels. While its main objective continues to be injury prevention, the 90 minute interactive workshop provides practical coaching tips and strategies based around safe technique for the contact area of Rugby.
A new intuitive around Teenage rugby this year will be imposed. This includes a change of rules in some areas and up skilling coaches who work with teenagers.
Also for added value to club coaches who register there will be a specialized module provided. We insist that 2 coaches/managers per team attend any one of the courses that will be held in the wider Bay of Plenty region.
Courses are held across the Bay of Plenty region. To view the latest course dates click here.
