Continuous Personal Development

All CPD courses listed cost £15 with a duration of 2 hours.

CPD courses can be requested by any club or school to host and will run with a minimum of 10 people.

To request a CPD course, please use the attached booking form or contact your CRC.

 

CPD Coaching Continuity in the 15-a-side game

This course focuses on the manipulation of a defence by the ball carrier and support. As the primary threat to a defensive line, the ball carrier can disrupt the line shape and present opportunities to evade tackles, while maintaining forward movement.

CPD Coaching Maul & Ruck in the 15-a-side game

This module focuses on the lack of game understanding in players at the breakdown, partly due to expectations embedded by the traditional drill format. The drill is an excellent tool for developing technique in isolation but of little value for game understanding and situational recognition.

CPD Coaching Back Line Attack in the 15-a-side game

The strategy and tactics of the backs should reflect the skills of your players.

The most important area may be how space is attacked. The ability to manage the space in front and between the teams is vital. Players should understand that pressure cannot be applied to the opposition unless they put themselves under pressure. This module helps coaches to condition sessions to develop decision-making in the face of varying scenarios.

CPD Coaching Defence in Phase Play in the 15-a-side game

The target audience for the Defence in Phase Play course is under-16 age group and above. Younger players should focus on tackle technique and scoring tries. The course is based on a set of philosophies and is not a system in itself. If players lack tackle skills, a defence system may have limited success.

CPD Coaching Half Back Play in the 15-a-side game

Development of Technical and Tactical understanding in half backs is essential for a team to achieve its potential. This course helps coaches understand how to help players apply some principles in the game, by creating realistic practices.

CPD Coaching Kicking

in the 15-a-side game

 

Traditionally, the coach tells the players when to kick and the player kicks. However, will this impact on the player’s decision making skills? By working in a game format the players have multiple opportunities to explore tactically and technically through discovery learning. Kicking lends itself to varied game-related activities that are both enjoyable and educational, some of which are covered during the kicking module.

CPD Coaching the Lineout in the 15-a-side game

The lineout module explores, through a game-sense approach, innovative and active practices maximising player involvement. Coaches must monitor fatigue as this approach may mean far more jumping and lifting than in a match, and safety is always of paramount importance.

CPD Team Selection

The process of team selection in clubs is often based on subjective judgment, or a gut feeling on how a player is performing or may perform. Team selection is one of the most regular activities, often carried out on a weekly basis. The team selection course helps coaches to be both proactive and reactive in selecting.

CPD Coaching 7-a-side Rugby

5 hours

£30

This course introduces coaches to the principles of coaching seven-a-side rugby and develops their understanding of attacking and defensive frameworks from phase play and set piece. It will be of use for devising practices and by offering coaching models that help to use these practices with players.
