USA Rugby’s Coach Development Program (CDP) is designed to meet the needs of American Rugby coaches. Partnerships with the International Rugby Board (IRB), the Rugby Football Union (RFU), and the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) have allowed USA Rugby to make significant improvements to the program.
The two workshops currently offered by USA Rugby are:
1. Introducing Rugby
2. Developing Rugby Skills.
Both workshops are two days and run simultaneously on both the Saturday (9am-5pm) and Sunday (9am-4pm) of the given weekend.
Coaches receive a manual and coaching gift upon arrival and will need to bring a pen or pencil to take notes. A portion of the workshops is group work within the classroom but the majority is on the pitch (weather permitting) or in a gym. Coaches will be asked to role-play as players during portions of the practical sessions. Please be ready to partake in physical activity both days inside and/or outside. Make sure you wear active clothing, proper shoes or cleats, and weather related attire.
Registration information is available online at usarugby.org. Please follow the prompts for “coaches” and “coach education” to register. Please note that the registration fee is significantly lower with early sign-up.
