Year 2013: High school competing at the breakdown

We need coaching and refereeing help!

We always need help on the coaching and refereeing front! Parents and anyone else who are interested can jump in. This includes kids who want to expand their rugby horizons. New to rugby? That is fine, you will learn on the field and during coach/ref courses.

On this page you will find coaching information and guidelines, and more importantly, how to get certified. To coach TAG (u7, u9, u11) you will need to pass the on-line Level 100 certification. For Tackle (u13 and above) you will need to complete the Level 200 certification. There are various ref courses as well.

First please read the Coaching Plan page.
