IRANZ are pleased to announce applications are now open for the 2017 US Coach Exchange Programme.

Starting this September, IRANZ will be sending several coaches to fill 3-month coaching placements at top American Rugby Club's.

This offer is exclusively available to coaches that have completed an International Rugby Academy Coaching Course.

Rugby in the USA is growing rapidly, and while the American player-base continues to grow, there is a shortage of quality, experienced coaches.

Having educated a number of Coaches over the years, we are delighted to offer all International Rugby Academy Coach Graduates an opportunity to develop their coaching skills further and gain valuable coaching experience in a completely new environment.

To apply, coaches must be available between 1 September and 30 November, and have successfully completed an IRANZ Coaching Course.

All IRANZ Coach Graduates are encouraged to apply now, via the 2017 US Coach Exchange Programme page.
