Penguin Coach Educators, Gary Henderson, Rob Clilverd and Lynn Evans, visited Gibraltar to deliver the IRB Level 1 Coaching Course to twenty two coaches from the local rugby community at the Victoria Stadium. The local coachesí experience covered a range of responsibilities; coaching young children, teenagers, and adult teams from the Gibraltar Super 4 Competition.
The course progressed from introducing how to coach effectively, through games and safely-led activities, to developing a deeper understanding of rugby techniques. The local coaches also completed their Rugby Ready and Laws assessments, as well as passing their IRB L1 course.
The feedback from the coaches was effusive, and it is hoped that the Penguins will support the return of coach educators to deliver a Level 2 in the very near future.
