Why IRANZ?

For ambitious Rugby Coaches, genuine Coaching Courses and development opportunities can be hard to come by.

That’s why IRANZ developed a range of Rugby Coaching Courses, to provide an authentic growth opportunity for beginner coaches, right through to coaches aspiring to reach professional level.

Designed for rugby coaches, by coaches – our programmes are designed to create a learning environment that fosters creative thinking and practical application. Each Course provides participants with the structure, strategy and blueprint that professionals use, which can be implemented within any rugby-coaching environment.

The IRANZ Coaching Course Experience

IRANZ Coaching Courses are ‘full-immersion’, meaning participants stay together on-site for the duration of the Course in a rugby camp-style environment.

Our more advanced Courses cover Position-Specific knowledge and a live match observation, which provides an in-depth understanding of each position on the field.

Our Coaching Course facilitators are chosen from the world’s current and former rugby elite. You’ll learn directly from these facilitators, and also observe them in live scenarios with players.

Designed to create a learning environment that fosters creative thinking and practical application, our range of Coaching Courses will provide you with the structure, strategy and blueprint that professionals use that you can implement within your own coaching environment.

Course modules include a range of classroom, practical and live scenarios with players, so participants can apply the theory learned under the watch of our facilitators.

“The course has been really unbelievable. I walk away from here a much better coach. I’ve benefited much more (from this course) than ever in my wildest dreams I could have hoped for.”
