High School Conatct Coach Requirements

LEVEL 200 - ALL CONTACT COACHES

Coaches must already be a Level 100 coach before registering to attend a Level 200 clinic. Once you take the Level 100 please email your Rugby Ready certification to Education@usarugby.org to have it associated to your profile.

The Level 200 Coach Certification consists of online pre-course work and attendance at an in-person clinic. The course structure helps to blend the “how to coach” theory with the practical implementation of coaching Rugby.

The Level 200 Coach Certification focuses on player welfare and teaching players the technical skills to play safely. The assessment requires coaches to demonstrate effective coaching techniques. These techniques include teaching through games, technical skill development through progressions and collaborative coaching.

WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO COMPLETE THIS LEVEL?

  1. Complete the Level 100 (Rugby Ready) course and have it added to your USAR profile by emailing your certificate to education@usarugby.org.
