Coach Certification Courses

Host a Coaching Course!!

To assist coaches in meeting the requirement that EVERY coach working with contact teams (U10 and up) be certified as a Level 200 coach, SCYR works to arrange at least one Level 200 course in each of our 4 geographic regions before each season.

We are always looking for member clubs with access to a classroom/indoor space and some outdoor space (does not need to be an entire pitch) to host Level 200 courses.  If you host a course, your coaches don't need to travel!!

If you are interested in hosting the course, please contact Gavin Beaudry:  gbeaudry@socalyouthrugby.org or 619-419-9887.

Level 200 Coach Certification

The Level 200 Coach Certification course is run by USA Rugby and hosted by SCYR member clubs. 

The Level 200 Coach Certification consists of online pre-course work and attendance at an in-person clinic. The course structure helps to blend the “how to coach” theory with the practical implementation of coaching Rugby.

The Level 200 Coach Certification focuses on player welfare and teaching players the technical skills to play safely. The assessment requires coaches to demonstrate effective coaching techniques. These techniques include teaching through games, technical skill development through progressions and collaborative coaching.

What do I have to do to complete this level?
  1. Complete the Level 100: World Rugby Rugby Ready (click here)
  2. Complete the Level 200 online pre-course work (click here)

We will keep a list of upcoming Level 200 courses in this section, please check back.
