Welsh Rugby has adapted the landscape of community coach development in Wales to meet the changing needs of grassroots coaches and players.

WRU Coach development department is committed to developing a system that allows every coach to be the best they can be in all forms of the game and fit for purpose in all environments. Developing the curious coaches is one of the WRU key strategic aim.

The WRU coach development department has developed a world leading coach framework that enables coaches to meet the needs of their community clubs, schools and playing environments. By increasing the knowledge around our core values and behaviours for everyone involved in our game.

It endeavours to engage with all coaches to provide the right programme at the right time for the coach, to be more visible and to give guidance and leadership and be accessible for support and direction when needed. 

The department uses various methods of coach education delivery and facilitates more opportunities for coaches to develop through tailored learning and development 

There are many opportunities for development and support from the formal coach education courses, continuous coach development and coaches corner, all these can be found by clicking on the link below or through the bookings tab at the top of the page.

Effective coach development delivery is one of the key enablers to promoting engagement, enhancing experiences, and enabling learning outcomes to be achieved. As volunteers, more than 90% of our coaches devote hours of their own time and energy to developing players.

As with players, coaches  grow when exposed to learning and development opportunities. Over 80% of our current coach members have transitioned into coaching from being a player participant. 

Community coach development manager Gerry Roberts said: "Grassroots club coaches form the vast majority of our active coaches in Wales and we believe this new approach to coach development will not only support them in their journey as coaches but in doing so will improve how we develop our players in Wales."

The WRU Coaches Code of Practice

Coaching is a powerful catalyst for promoting positive behaviour within Welsh Rugby. Coaches have a key role to ensure that those who take part in rugby in Wales have enjoyment and fulfilment from the sport, and enable participants to achieve their goals and aspirations.

It is a coaches responsibility to develop and lead an optimal culture that services the needs of players and the team in relation to their aspirations and goals.

Working with and for people is central to the effectiveness of a coach to develop and build positive relationships with others.

The WRU Coaches Code of Practice aims to provide clear guidance on the expected standards of conduct that coaches should adhere to. The WRU Coaches Code of Conduct is aligned alongside this Code of Practice, to assist coaches in developing the key principles of good coaching practice.

The WRU Coaches Code of Conduct has been developed to help provide clarity of what good practice looks and feels like in terms of coaching behaviours. It will also summarise what poor practice looks and feels like.
