Level 1 coaching and grade 1 match officials courses to take place

Two free coaching courses will take place at Sport Wales on Sundays January 26th and February 9th from 10am until 4pm on each day.

There will be a grade 1 match officials’ course and a Wales’ first ever level 1 coaching course.

UPDATE – The coaches course is now full. You can go on a standby list or apply to go on the match officials course. If you don’t get into the coaches course this time, another will be held in a few months. Priority for any future coaches course will be given to those who have completed a match officials course. We’re delighted that 25% of the applicants for the coaching course are female.

For the first time in Wales, both courses will come together for the opening when Wales Rugby League’s CEO Gareth Kear will talk to all attendees as he delivers an introduction to WRL followed by a talk on anti-doping and concussion.

The coaching course will then be delivered by Mark Jones and Paul Emanuelli, who both have plenty of experience of coaching many sides in Wales.

The match officials course will then be delivered by top referees James Jones and Rob Apsee.

Both courses is open to anyone, regardless of experience, and both are two-day courses with all attendees needing to attend both days as detailed above.
