Two-day mini course a big hit
The Munster Rugby Coaching development department recently hosted an IRFU Stage 1 (mini) coaching course in Cork's Colaiste Stiofain Naofa with 37 coaches in attendance for this two-day course.
The course content included indoor modules, role of the coach, teaching skills, planning and organisation methodology and a mini refereeing accreditation module.
The outdoor practicals included core skills development and coaching in passing and receiving, tackle, ruck, and the development of skills in the scrum and line-out.
This was also the first course to initiate the new coaching accreditation on concussion. All coaches attending had to complete the IRB concussion module online as part of their accreditation process.
Munster Rugby will be hosting mini (Stage 1) and foundation (Stage 2) IRFU coaching courses this weekend in the University of Limerick and will also be co-ordinating a Stage 2 course in Clonmel at the end of February (limited places available).
