Coaching Courses

Online Coach Registration

ONLINE COACH REGISTRATION: 

Coach registration will now be done online and each coach must attend either Rugby Smart or Small Blacks coaching course.

Coaches must attend a course as these are a mandatory requirement of coaching any team.

Rugby Smart coaches coaching players over 13 years of age should not complete the driver license field.

Small Black coaches can now complete the police vetting consent form online within the NZR coach registration form. Coaches simply complete the driver's license field and agree to the terms and conditions in the form. 

Coaches must bring their two forms of ID to the course so the coach facilitator can confirm your attendance.

Small Blacks Coaching Course

The 2017 NZRU Coaching Small Blacks Rugby Course is a 2.5 hour theory and practical course which will provide coaches and parents with knowledge and skills to assist with coaching and refereeing Junior Rugby.

The practical coaching sessions will be split into the three age groups that make up Small Black Rugby, Beginning (Rippa), Learning (8-10) and Playing (11-13). These are an open forum where new coaches get the opportunity to learn from other coaches with experience in their particular grade.

All Small Blacks Coaches attend a management module before the practical session to cover off planning sessions, dealing with players and refereeing matters.

Rugby Smart Course

Course Content
A course concentrating on injury prevention through the coaching of good techniques, this course is a great opportunity to meet other coaches involved in club and secondary school rugby to discuss likely trends and possible focus areas for 2017, coaches also receive a Coaching Diary and other coaching resources available from New Zealand Rugby.

Who Should Go?
It is COMPULSORY for All coaches, Assistant Coaches and Managers to attend a RugbySmart course prior to the season starting.

CLUB CONTEST BY-LAWS:
Any person actively fulfilling the role of Head Coach or Assistant Coach during a MRU Club Rugby competition fixture must have attended a Rugby Smart Injury Prevention Workshop for the current season and be registered for that current season. Any team/club appointing a Head Coach or Assistant Coach to a fixture that has not attended Rugby Smart and therefore considered unregistered shall be liable to the following penalties:

Points deduction, and/or the offending player and/or team shall be liable to suspension by the MRU, and/or to forfeit the match, and that winning points be awarded to the non-offending team. If a win is recorded then it stands, minus any points accrued by the offending team. If not, a 0-0 (4 points) win will be recorded.


Associate Referees Courses

The Associate Referee course is an introduction to refereeing taking 2-3 hours depending on numbers. Key elements in the course include management strategies, communication and law application.

On completion of the course participants will be legally able referee using contested scrums.

We as a union are encouraging all “Playing Rugby” level Small Blacks teams to have an Associate Referee so the games can be facilitated well while the coaches can get on and do their coaching. We also recommend clubs and schools have Associate Referees they can call on in the event a referee cannot be appointed to a game or some extenuating reason a referee cannot make their game.
