NZRU Foundation Course

The Foundation course has been developed by NZRU to provide coaches with an understanding of how to coach as well as a basic understanding of some of the key skills required in the game of rugby.

This course is directed at all college and club coaches who are interested in growing their coaching skills & knowledge.  All coaches who attend the course receive a comprehensive manual focussing on the skills of rugby as well as providing basic information on teaching a skill within a team environment.
