Stage 2 Coaching Course

The age-grade of players in this category is from U13-U15. During this stage of coaching, players learn to explore through the game. Coaches teach rather than guide during this level as players at this age-grade. Whilst the game is still fun and safe at this stage, it moves from open play to a more structured format to introduce basic units of play.


Line Out Jumping and Lifting Workshop:

Leinster Rugby are hosting a Stage 2 lineout jumping and lifting workshop for Metro club coaches.

The aim of this session is to give coaches the technical knowledge, to confidently coach lifting and jumping safely.

Please note, this workshop is open to all age groups in Stage 2 – and we would encourage coaches to attend to have these skills to coach these aspects of the line out and give players a head-start in their learning. (Your team does not need to be lifting in line out for you to come and learn how to effectively and safely coach these skills)
