The Active Coaching Badge for the 2023/24 season has now been launched for Minis and Youth coaches in Connacht.
What is the Active Coach Badge?
A way for coaches to control their own development by attending a mixture of regional workshops and completing online training modules. Workshops are free to attend to all coaches who are coaching in Connacht who have registered for a coaching course on Gainline in the past. Workshops are run by IRFU staff and guest coaches. The Active Coach Badge is designed for coaches who have attended a coaching course but wish to continue their development and grow their knowledge around different aspects of the game.
