Bears to host Coach Education Workshop

We’re inviting regional junior coaches to join us on Thursday, September 1st for a Coach Education Workshop.

REGISTER HERE

The workshop will target coaches of U11s, U12s and U13s age groups. During the workshop we will share a little about the What, How and Why we coach as we do across the Academy and Foundation. A presentation and a practical session will be included for the coaches.

Academy and Foundation staff, who have extensive experience of working within the community game, will host the evening.

Junior Academy Manager, Gary Townsend, who will be contributing his experience on the day, said: “The Bristol Bears Junior Academy is excited to be involved in this joint initiative with the Bears Community Foundation. It is important to us that we recognise and support the excellent work our local clubs do in introducing players to rugby and developing their skills and game understanding.

“We aim to do this through a programme for coaches by sharing our wealth of experience and expertise in participation, talent development and performance”.

Community development manager, Craig Capel said: “We are excited to see where a closer alignment of the Foundation and Junior Academy can further support the work of the great number of clubs in our region, in particular the coaches across this network.

“Many involved in our game will be able to share the huge value of our local combination clubs to their often lifelong engagement in Rugby Union. We hope that a new programme of Bristol Bears Coach Education will continue to positively impact the development of our clubs, its coaches and young players. Special thanks to the Gloucestershire Rugby Football Union for their assistance.”
