Coach Development Day


Coach Development Day 2022

Rugby PA is excited to partner with the EPRU and MARC to announce the return of our Coach Development Day for 2022. The goal of this event is to again create a day that helps prepare and advance the knowledge of the coaches from Pennsylvania and the surrounding areas. Using resources from both USA Rugby and Major League Rugby, we will be offering a coaches clinic and Level 1 Coaching Certification course. The two different programs are designed to allow a coach from any level to come and get value from the event.

This years event will take place on Sunday, February 6th at Centerville Middle School in Lancaster, PA. Those who will be registering for the Level 1 Certification, will do so using the link below (via USA Rugby Website). The cost of this course is $125 and includes lunch.
