The International Rugby Coaching Initiative (IRCI)

Our aim is to bring together those who can offer their rugby coaching experience to youngsters in India, Sri Lanka and China (and elsewhere as the Initiative expands) who are already playing rugby but are very keen to learn more about the game and improve their playing abilities.

A simple way to look at the Initiative is :

Coaches & knowledgeable players want to teach rugby,

youngsters want to play rugby, but coaches are in short supply in some countries.

Solution : encourage players & coaches to travel to those youngsters and pass on their knowledge of the game of rugby.

This is the sole aim of the Initiative.

Clubs already exist to encourage and facilitate playing rugby at grass roots level, but these clubs would welcome assistance from anyone prepared to work with them on the coaching front and put emphasis on the latest safe-play thinking to prevent injuries.

The youngsters playing and learning about rugby will benefit from such extra coaching and by being involved in rugby while it is still a relatively unknown sport in their countries. These youngsters could well become the rugby stars of the future.

If you believe you have the qualities required to coach these youngsters, don’t hesitate, get in touch with us today and find out how you can play a part in this exciting new Initiative.

There could not be a better time to become involved with the growth of rugby in countries only just beginning to play the game.
