Course content

Within its six modules, the online course will address eight key topics:

  • Long Term Player Development Pathway
  • Functional screening
  • Anatomical Adaptation
  • Demands of the game
  • Principles of training
  • Speed and intermittent sprint endurance
  • Periodisation
  • Recovery

The online course will expand on the physical conditioning content in the Rugby Ready course. The topics addressed will seek to enhance the coach’s knowledge and understanding of Strength and Conditioning for the Rugby player. In particular, the course will introduce the coach to the Long Term Player Development Pathway in a practical manner. A simple yet informative Functional Screen will be outlined. The coach will then be introduced to the concept and practice of ‘Anatomical Adaptation’, or preparing the player to be fit to train, practice and play. This approach to physical conditioning emphasises a combination of stability, mobility and strength training activities while simultaneously engaging in Rugby-related activities.
