Testimonials

“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
