RFU launch Manx learning courses

Rugby union

The Rugby Football Union in the Isle of Man is organising a series of courses to encourage players to improve on their knowledge of the game.

There is a tag rugby course aimed at people who want to get started in the coaching process.

There is also an RFU Level 1 coaching qualification and a more advanced course for potential referees.

The tuition, which is open to anyone over 16, could result in certified qualifications from the RFU.

Rugby development officer Ian Williams said: "The course for referees is really important because without refs there can be no games.

"After receiving your qualification you will be allocated games at which you can be assessed and progress on a refereeing career."

For more information you can contact the Sports Development Unit on 01624 686808.
