“The coaching course offered by the academy provided me with an insight as to how rugby should be played and has equipped me with the tools to take the teams that I work with to new heights – from youngsters just starting their playing careers and needing to understand the basics to the seasoned campaigners in the Senior’s needing to be reminded of how simple the game should be played and why good techniques is so important. I learned so much in such a short time thanks to the excellent teaching styles of Jim and Darrel. Consequently, I would personally recommend a course at the academy both for coaches that have limited coaching experience as well for those with more extensive knowledge.”
