Rugby Coach Development Opportunity with the Saints
Posted: Wed, 22 Jul 2015 09:00
Cascade Coaching is a brand new and unique initiative that will raise standards of club and school coaching across the East of England.
Cascade Coaching gives coaches from the region the opportunity to learn from Saints coaches at a number of masterclasses that are delivered during the season.
Cascade Coaching is not about teaching tactics, but will give attendees the tools they need to develop their own clubs, teams and individual player skills, thereby improving standards both on and off the pitch. The programme is therefore as applicable for age group coaches as those who coach adult players, and it counts towards a coach's RFU Coaching License continuing professional development.
There is no charge for participating clubs, although there will be a cost if the club concerned would like Saints staff to evaluate their coaches as they work in their own environment.
The first session will take place at Cambridge RFC on 29th July from 9am - 3pm and be completely free to attend! Topics will include:
Adaptive games and their use, attacking and defensive structure, gameplay, the contact area, lineouts, strength and conditioning in young rugby players, backs attack.
