Coaching Updates – December 2020

*World Rugby Level 3 Coaching Course: Applications Open – Deadline January 3rd 2021*

from Rugby Canada

Rugby Canada are delighted to announce that applications for the NCCP Competition Development (World Rugby Level 3) Course are now open.

A blended version of the course will be held in 2021 with several bi-weekly online sessions, facilitated by Rugby Canada’s Educator Team, and supplemented with guest speakers on a variety of topics. In between these sessions, coaches will have mandatory tasks to complete. Following the completion of the online sessions, Rugby Canada will host an in-person training weekend in Toronto from December 3-5, 2021.

Applications for the course are now being accepted and will close on Sunday, January 3rd at Midnight ET / 9pm PT. Unfortunately, those who have already applied will be required to resubmit their applications. However, they can resubmit with the same application task.

“We are very excited about new opportunities that will arise as we deliver this course in a blend of online and in-person sessions for the first-time in Canada,” said Jacqueline Tittley, Manager of Training and Education for Rugby Canada. “This approach will allow coaches to access the program anywhere in Canada and enable us to invite guest speakers and content experts that would not otherwise have been able to attend.”

Online Sessions (5:00-6:30pm PT / 8:00-9:30pm ET / 9:00-10:30pm AT):

Selected coaches will be expected to engage fully and completely in the process. Should any coach be unable to participate in multiple online sessions or consistently fail to complete tasks on time, they will be asked to leave the course. For more information on the scope of commitment of the course, please review the coach development model graphic above.

The cost has been adjusted to reflect the change in course structure. A course fee of $700 will be due upon acceptance of selection. The course fee includes both training and evaluation. The course fee does not include travel or accommodation for the in-person session.

Applications and any questions should be emailed to Jackie Tittley, Manager of Training and Education at Coaches who are interested but do not feel ready to begin the process can also contact Jackie Tittley for more information on how to prepare.
