The coaching requirements of all clubs for the 2016 Minnesota Youth Rugby Season include:
Links and documents for the required items can be found below.
All required documents should be sent to the High School Commissioners at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: It is strongly recommended that all head coaches are to have completed the USA Rugby Coach Development Program Level 200. Registration of a Minnesota High School Coach under any other level (i.e. player, referee, or Eagle Supporter) does not satisfy the above requirements and requires filling out a dual registration form at www.usarugby.org. Please see USA Rugby’s Coach Registration and Certification handout titled “The New American Rugby Coach”.
Step 1: Contact your local PE Teachers (schools that feed into your program) either by email, phone, or meeting. Feel free to use the letter below when initiating contact with schools and teachers. Please add your own thoughts and information to the letter!
Step 2: Once a relationship/communication with the school or teacher has been established, the club liaison or coach should contact email@example.com, to inform MYR of the connection.
Step 3: MYR will guide and support outreach efforts and maintaining the clubs relationship with the school.
***The club is expected to be an active participant through the outreach process. This will ensure a continued relationship with the schools and potential players, which will improve recruitment and retention.
