As part of the commitment to support and develop coaches at all levels of the game, Leinster Rugby and the IRFU are delighted to present the first of our online coaching video resources. These resources are intended to initially support the development of Stage 1 coaches and players, supplementing the body of information provided on the IRFU Mini Rugby Coaching Courses.

This coach development resource is supplemented by the work of the Community Rugby Officers throughout Leinster who run a series of coach development workshops.

For information on workshops already scheduled please click here or to arrange to host a coach development workshop in your club/school you can contact your local Community Rugby Officer.

The IRFU would like to thank the Community Rugby Officers in Leinster Rugby and the Mini Rugby coaches and players in Coolmine RFC for their involvement in bringing this initiative to fruition.
