Additionally, thanks to funding made available by Rugby Canada and World Rugby, Member Clubs can also apply for Youth Coach Funding that will provide opportunities for coach training and ongoing youth programming support to ensure a safe, enjoyable and fun environment for young players in BC.
The Youth Coach Funding will help support Clubs development of new and returning coaches and volunteer helpers of U14 and Mini Rugby programming, to ensure confidence in delivering structured, safe, and fun programs for all participants.
Coaches will be trained and supported by BC Rugby Coach Educators to receive an NCCP Level 1 Coaching Certification, as well as continual guidance and support in how to deliver best in class programming to young female participants. This includes Online NCCP Level 1 Coach training, and both in-person and online coach and volunteer mentorship.
BC Rugby will cover all costs related to receiving the NCCP Level 1 Coaching Course, travel for Coach Educators to visit your Club and the development of your coaches.
“We are excited to be able to provide support to local rugby clubs and club leaders who are delivering Rookie Rugby programming. We look forward to the impact this project will have in the development of youth club rugby in BC.” Rugby Canada Rugby Development Officer Ryan Jones
