Coaching and Referee Qualifications
|Training to be a Coach / Referee (information mainly for the Junior Section)
The club sponsors those who wish to take approved training courses and improve their skills. Speak to your Head Coach or Rob Newman/Antony Legge at firstname.lastname@example.org, who organise all club sponsored training for the Junior Section.
COACHING - For beginners the first move is to take the 'Rugby Ready' Course which is a pre-requisite for the 'Level 1' Course in Coaching. You then move on to Level 1.
REFEREE - The first course, which takes you to Level 2 is called the "Entry Level Referees Award" this turns you in to a Level 13 referee!!
DBS - all club volunteers must undertake a check. Full details can be found on the DBS policy and process on the website
COACHING - we allow coaches to train from age 16, the earliest age that coaches can be DBSed. They are welcome to join in coaching sessions, but until they are 18 must be supervised when coaching contact activities.
REFEREE - 18 is the minimum age for taking control of the game
DBS - can be undertaken through the RFU from the age of 16
We will allow Coaches to undertake sponsored training from 16 and Refs from 17 1/2. This is provided that you are sponsored by your head coach, who is convinced that he will gain benefit from the club paying for your training
