Coaching Rugby In the ACTJRU

Coaching is a great way to get involved in the game of rugby union. Whether you’re a parent of a junior player, a community member seeking to help or a youth looking at other ways to be part of your local club.

As a coach you become the heart and soul of a team who lean on you for guidance both on and off the field, so it is important to ensure you have the correct knowledge and accreditation to safely and confidently coach your team.

In addition to helping out a local club or school, representative pathways exist for coaches within the ACTJRU in the same way that they exist for aspiring players.
