Information for current and aspiring coaches

Why Become a Coach?

Through learning to coach, you will develop your own understanding of the game, as a player, referee, or even a spectator. However, coaching is about much more than that; it is about gaining understanding, so that you can guide and inspire others. You may be thinking of coaching to help out at your local club, or to teach the sport to children in schools, and as you develop your skills you may one day find yourself coaching at an elite level – just like former Wales international Dave Buckland, who has coached Wales, England, and Great Britain!
