Hi there, just advice, I currently play for a local team, only social rugby, I love the sport, but so does my little boy who's 4... I was interested in finding out what qualifications processes you would need to go through to setup a little rugby class in my local area.
Im not looking to teach the Kids the Rules of Rugby or have games, but more touch and chase the tag, fitness, co-ordinations skills etc... but how qualified do I need to be, and where would be a good start to getting a programme together...
Hope you can help....
It is great that you want to get involved and you are quite right to seek to get properley qualified as this will help you help your child and his friends in the best and safest way possible.
You dont need to do lengthy theory courses - you will find starting as a coach fun and interactive!
My advice is to look at the RFU main website. You will find all the information you need there under:
Becoming a qualified coach has never been easier. The RFU is equipped to help you through the process and has a range of qualifications, courses, seminars and support services to help you fulfil your coaching potential.
The foundation courses, such as Tag Rugby, the RFU Community Leaders Award and Start Rugby Coaching, are designed to help educate newcomers to the game and improve coaching of modified versions of the game.
After that you will find a coaching pathway from Level 1 to Level 4.
Have a look at the free downloadable booklets on the Coach section.
I hope this helps you and wish you luck!
