Junior Rugby Coaching


Empower the Next Generation of Rugby Players:

As a rugby coach, you’re not just teaching a sport; you’re shaping futures. Your coaching unlocks a treasure trove of opportunities, fostering an active lifestyle that extends far beyond childhood. The junior rugby coaching course is your playbook for integrating the Long-term Participant Development (LTPD) model into your training regime. It’s about crafting a bespoke sports program that resonates with the developmental stages of each child—cognitive, emotional, physical, and mental. This approach ensures that young players learn rugby at a comfortable pace, building both skill and confidence. As a result, they’ll eagerly anticipate each practice, equipped with the knowledge that they’re not just playing rugby—they’re mastering it.

This course is perfect for....
