Imagine learning 1-on-1 from these very coaches…

What could you achieve if you had even one day to learn from coaches of this calibre?

This is the premise of all IRANZ Coaching Courses.

By placing ambitious rugby coaches in close-quarters with some of the greatest rugby-minds in the world – IRANZ provides a truly unique opportunity to learn first-hand, the very ‘blueprint’ that professional coaches use in the game today.

Here is what you receive on any IRANZ Coaching Course:

  • The ‘blueprint’ that professional rugby coaches use to create a winning culture and environment
  • The chance to learn the roles & responsibilities of every position on the field intricately, from one of our Positional Experts (most often a former All Black)
  • A step-by-step template for developing your own philosophy as a rugby coach
  • A guide on how to plan a season campaign, from start to finish
  • A crash-course in all the latest drills and exercises used to develop a strong base of core skills among players, including catch & pass, tackle, clean etc., and
  • The opportunity to learn 1-on-1 with a panel of former All Blacks and professional coaches.

Joining other coaches from similar environments from different areas of the rugby globe, IRANZ Coaching Course participants also benefit from the sharing and networking that occurs among the various participants attending from around the world.

Combined with the other tools, strategies and methods learned over the full duration of a programme, there is nothing quite like The IRANZ Experience.

Have you ever attended a Coaching Course, and come out the other end wondering if you’re actually any better-off to make a positive impact and influence on your player’s development, and your team’s performance?

This is what separates the IRANZ Experience from the competition.
