Coaching provides a rich and rewarding experience for you and the players you coach. Tag Rugby offers an ideal medium for introducing you to coaching sport and more specifically to coaching rugby in an enjoyable, simple and safe way. Tag Rugby is a fast-moving, non-contact invasion game suitable for boys and girls to play together.

Tag to Tackle

Tag 2 Tackle is a video resource available on the RFU Coaching Academy website which provides practical advice to coaches on ensuring young players retain their evasion skills learned through Tag, and integrate those evasion skills into playing contact rugby.

Rugby Ready

The IRB Rugby Ready programme was launched in October 2007 to educate, aid and support players, coaches, match officials and unions on the importance of sufficient preparation for training and playing in order for rugby to be played and enjoyed while reducing the risk of serious injury.

Safeguarding "Play it safe"

The aim of the three-hour Play It Safe workshop is to provide a rugby-specific basic awareness of safeguarding and protecting children, vulnerable adults and those involved in organising and coaching rugby. 

Fundamental to the workshop is ensuring everyone understands what best practice in rugby looks like and an appreciation how we can achieve this, working together as a safeguarding team.
