Coaching is central to developing, sustaining and increasing participation in rugby union as well as improving performance at all levels. Coaches work with a vast range of performers - some seeking enjoyment and purposeful participation, others concerned with making a living and some driven to achieve international honours. To be an effective coach, you will need to fulfil a number of different roles involving the technical, tactical, physical and mental aspects demanded by the game.
The quality of coaching is important to all, and whatever your reason for being involved, Scottish Rugby are committed to offering a coaching development service to help you become as good a coach as you can be.
Coaches should visit Introduction to Coaching Rugby to inform themselves on how to become a rugby coach, where to start and how to coach appropriately to the age and stage of their players.
