Here is an update on how coach education will be structured in 2017 from the ARU, please see below information in regards to this.

Coaching Kids Rugby

In 2017 the ARU has advised that the Coaching Kids Rugby Course will now be delivered in 2 parts:

Online Theory Course

2 Hour Practical Skills Session at clubs (demonstration of drills)

The ARU advised yesterday that the online course would be available from the end of March, therefore we will begin delivery of the skills sessions from April.

Course Cost: $35/Person

If a coach wishes to do a course prior to the Coaching Kids being available they are advised to complete the online Smart Rugby Course, which is available through the ARU Learning Centre (https://rugby.force.com/rugbyportal/apex/RL_Home)



Foundation will be delivered the same way in 2017 as it was in 2016 – this is a full day course.

Please note Foundation is the pre-requisite course for Level 1 Coach Accreditation, which is completed online following the foundation course.

The first round of foundation courses can be found at the link below:




Course Cost – $95/person



Level 1 Coach Accreditation

The Level 1 Coach Accreditation can be completed online through the ARU Learning Centre following the completion of the foundation course.


Foundation course participants will be provided these details after the course.


Course Cost – $40/person



Developing Coach Course (Level 2)

The Developing Coach Course (Level 2) is a 3-day course – we will run 4 of these courses in Brisbane in 2017 (February, July, September and November)


These courses are by application as the ARU have put a restriction on the number of people on each course.


The ARU has provided the following guidelines regarding course selection – This course is specifically designed for senior coaches working with adult athletes.

Therefore these coaches will receive priority when course selection takes place. However we will still provide opportunities for coaches from Junior & Teenage Rugby to attend the course.


Course Cost – $480/Person ($440 for the course and $40 for the Coach Level 2 Accreditation)


Please note the February and July Courses are fully subscribed.



Course Payment and Registration

Each individual will register himself or herself in the learning center as they will need to use this to manage their accreditation post the course.
