Coaching

Welcome to Warwickshire Coaching and Training Web Links. We are here to support affiliated Clubs and Schools Coach training requirements throughout Warwickshire.

· It is our intention when the post lockdown landscape is safe, to run Club Coach Education Sessions, County Rep Coach Development Sessions and County Squad Player Skill Development Sessions with CB Coaches.

· We have, with the RFU identified 6 Club Coaches in the CB for a new 18 month ‘Targeted Mentoring Programme’ of blended monthly structured support and adapted support based on the needs of each individual coach. The programme began in March 2021.

· During Lockdown 2020 and the Return to Play 2021 new resources have been made available for all. Warwickshire is supported by a Game Development Team of RFU Staff who have been busy running webinars and initial online courses so far this year. Follow them on
