Who Should Attend?
- Professional coaches
- Aspiring professional coaches
- Coaches wanting to move up to the next level
- Ideally suited for senior club and regional coaches
- Intensive 7 day course
- Covers all aspects of professional coaching, tactics and preparation to team structures and motivation
- The unique concept of running the high performance players' and coaches' courses in tandem enables the coaches on the course to observe a team in action under the guidance of specialist coaches
- The international element delivers cross-pollination of ideas and styles, and a competitive learning environment stimulated by elite coaches from throughout the rugby world
- The interaction with other coaches on the course in effect makes the program a unique rugby coaching think tank
Participants on the course also have the opportunity to observe position specific specialists mentoring and analysing the players in their position.
At IRA our focus is firmly on high performance and our formula requires two courses (players and coaches) to be run in tandem.
The course will provide you with a framework to identify talent, increase your positional knowledge, analyse performance. You will get the opportunity to work with our Skills specialists and Strength and Conditioning Coach, who will be working with the High Performance Players. Coaches on the high performance course will have the opportunity to observe and interact with our Position Specific Specialists during this time as they work one on one with the players. We concentrate on 'remedial coaching' or 'problem solving' after the match which is played on Day Four.
Throughout each course we will introduce highly qualified tutors and coaches to address the areas of their specific expertise. We are confident these courses will provide you with solid knowledge, different perspectives and a challenging interactive 6 days. The cosmopolitan mix of coaches we will have on each course will create an infectious and highly stimulating environment and a sharing of ideas that will benefit all participants. IRANZ aims to provide a service to those in rugby who wish to achieve and will provide the steps to help coaches and players maximise their potential.
