Coaching Lowe Ability Rugby
Dates & Venues

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we do not have any courses scheduled. We will be releasing dates as soon as regulations change.

The landscape of school Rugby is changing rapidly. Few schools still make the contact game compulsory, and the RFU does not advise that any should. The challenge is to present the game in a safe and stimulating way, to engage players of all abilities to want to play. It is also necessary to provide alternative non-contact formats, both as training activities and additional formats for hesitant pupils. This course seeks to equip these coaches with an approach that has the best chance of engaging these pupils. It will enable coaches to help children enjoy running, evading and continuity, and create a positive attitude to the game and to rugby practice. There will also be a focus on safe coaching of contact techniques, in order to ensure that coaches are confident that they are minimising injury risk.
