Leinster Rugby Coach Development

The development of coaches at all levels has long been a priority of Leinster Rugby as high-quality coaching leads to high-quality experiences for players.  This, in turn, leads to increased rates of participation and improved performance levels.

Coaching Courses

Leinster Rugby provides coaching courses at all levels and all courses are suitable for female coaches or coaches of female players. For more information on your preferred course, click the relevant link below. Alternatively, simply book a course here.

Coach Development Workshops

In addition to coaching courses for which coaches receive a formal award, we offer a variety of CPD workshops. These are designed to provide coaches with a range of knowledge and skills that both complement and build upon what they have learned through attendance on one of our coaching courses.
