Practical Coaches Course

Have you recently started coaching rugby and want to upskill? Or perhaps you’ve been coaching for a while, but want to ‘brush up’ on all the essential skills and knowledge required to coach…

Then the IRANZ Practical Coaches Course is for you.

As the shortest programme in our series of Coaching Courses, the 3-day programme is designed for coaches of all abilities and covers all the fundamentals, latest strategies and tactics in rugby coaching.

Course modules

The Practical Coaches Course includes modules on:

  • Planning a Season
  • Team Attack and Defence
  • Contact / Breakdown / Continuity
  • Coaching Individual Skills
  • Set piece
  • Back attack
  • Counter Attack
  • Coaching communication skills

While the Practical Coaches Course programme includes a small number of modules working live with players, the programme will not include a live match observation or Position-Specific Coaches. Limited Position-Specific tuition is provided.

The content of this course has been carefully crafted to cover all the fundamentals of rugby coaching in the short 3-day duration.

Experienced coaches will benefit from new thinking and ideas, while relatively new coaches will receive all the tools and skills required for a full season of rugby.

I learned how to look at things from a different perspective. My players still benefit from what I learned at IRANZ every day. The calibre of the tutors was top shelf, by far the best Coaching Courses on offer anywhere.
