Sask Rugby announces new Coach Apprenticeship Program
Tuesday, May 22, 2012 - Submitted by Jordan Astrope
We are pleased to announce the start of the Saskatchewan Rugby Union Provincial Coaching Apprenticeship Program. Saskatchewan Rugby Union has an opportunity to select a number of female and male coaches as apprentices for the 2012 season.
Just like with our athletes, it is essential to train and develop our leaders. The purpose of the Saskatchewan Rugby Union Provincial Coaching Apprenticeship is to provide male and female coaches with a practical and integrated major national games experience. Selected coaches have direct involvement in preparation and competition and receive support from an identified mentor coach throughout the duration of the program. The Apprenticeship will also work toward the Evaluation for Introduction to Competition Certification. This program will help individuals gain experience and knowledge to bring out the best in their coaching ability.
