Rugbysmart is a world-leading programme designed to reduce rugby-related injury claims with ACC.
All rugby coaches or teams from Under 14 and above as well as all registered referees are required to attend a Rugby Smart Coaching Workshop every year.
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 including:
-safe tackle technique
For seven and ten a side rugby teams, one coach is required to complete Rugbysmart each year.
For fifteen-a-side rugby teams, two coaches are required to complete Rugbysmart each year.
