In order to improve the quality and quantity of Scotland’s rugby players, Scottish Rugby aims to provide a clear pathway for coach development. This will support member clubs and schools in their recruitment and development of coaches. Our aim is to ensure that coaches with the right skills knowledge and attributes are developed and deployed at every age and stage of a player’s development. Getting the right coaches with the right ethos and training at the right time is paramount to ensure that players’ needs are met. This is in line with sportscotland’s Coaching Scotland Strategy and the UK Coaching Framework.
To achieve this, we run a range of coaching qualification courses (UKCC endorsed) appropriate to the age and stage of the players you coach.
Through our courses, you’ll learn not only what to coach but how to coach it, all appropriate to the age and stage of your players. You will learn from your fellow coaches on the course as well as receive support from our coach educators as they take you through the syllabus.
Please contact Claire Scott, Coach Development Administrator (Claire.Scott@sru.org.uk 0131 346 5167; 07773 082924) should you have any questions.
