The ARU will not run any Level One ‘Coaching Children’ coaching courses unless a Garrison location specifically asks for a course to be delivered. Army Rugby Coaches normally coach senior XV sides which require the UKCC Level 2 coaching award.Therefore the coaching courses delivered will be the prerequisites required for and the UKCC Level 2 ‘Coaching Senior XV’ course itself.
The ARU Rugby Education Team will deliver all of the courses required to coach within the Adult game over a two week period. Normally Mon-Thu and the following Monday.All of the RFU run courses can be found here: www.englandrugby.com/my-rugby/courses

“I really enjoyed the course and got a lot of benefit, which I intend to use in coaching rugby and which I have no doubt has a broader application than just rugby.”
– Rich (Nav) Naivalurua
“I thought I knew a lot about rugby and how coaching works but this course has taught me so much more; I can now look at rugby from a coaching point of view – definitely the best course I have ever done. I would recommend every rugby player out there do it; even if you’re not thinking of becoming a coach, you will enjoy it and learn so much more about the game you love as a player”
– Gerhard Wessels
“Even the most experienced players and coaches will benefit from attending this course, I guarantee there’s something there worth thinking about; I have recommended it to friends already!”
– David Bates
