Raleigh Rugby Hosts USA Rugby Coach Certification Workshop

UPDATE:

Congratulations are in order for a total of (16) new certified USA Rugby coaches from rugby clubs across North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.

These gentlemen studied and performed various coach workshop activities for two full days this past weekend at the Eastern Wake Fire and Rescue Squad and the Raleigh Rugby pitch facilities in what was a very successful USA Rugby coach certification clinic.

Represented were coaches from Sherman University, Western Carolina University, Virginia Tech, Raleigh Youth Rugby, Fayetteville Youth Rugby, Camp Lejeune and the Chapel Hill Highlanders just to name a few.

Sean Reese and Brad Chapman from the new Fayetteville youth club(s) received their Level 200 certifications and very proud that they took the time and effort to champion this course. Look for good things from the Fayetteville area and please support these folks.

Special kudos and appreciation to the Chapel Hill Highlanders for sending a total of (7) enthusiastic coach participants to the clinic. That was almost half of the class!

Congratulations again to what was truly a great clinic. A lot of very useful information was shared amongst the coaches on all accounts.

Stay tuned for information on future coach clinics in the Raleigh area. We may opt for a Level II- Developing Rugby Skills course in October 2012.
