USA Rugby now requires both registration and certification in order to coach the game. The new Coach Development Program will not only improve access to the resources essential to personal development, but also restructure current coaching courses to maximize efficiency. The material offered online will be greatly increased allowing live sessions to be shortened. A crucial element of the new program will be introduction to ethical concerns related to coaching through the Player Protection Package. It will not only be a proactive approach to eradicating the potential for abuse in our game, but also an educational experience aimed at ensuring player safety.
