Carl Hogg, Forwards Coach, - Monday 13th July. Breakdown Skills/ Contact Area 6.30pm - 8.00pm
Throughout the season we are aiming to provide as much coach education as possible as part of a new scheme called the 'Club Connection Scheme'.
The programme affiliates clubs with Gloucester Rugby and we, then aim to provide you with as much value as possible in terms of match day tickets, signed memorabilia, website links and coaching sessions along with the opportunity for stadium tours and much more.
Please find below the 'Connection' invite and application form which highlights the key elements of the programme and the costs involved.
Additionally we are offering the first 10 clubs to reply and join, the chance to claim a unique Gloucester Rugby signed shirt for your club.
As part of the connection you will be able to invite as many coaches as you like to coach education programmes throughout the season however ONLY connected clubs will be able to take advantage of these sessions! (subject to availability)
Another fantastic part of the programme is that you may be selected as a club to provide some players to be coached, we look forward to your reply and hope to build relationships with as many clubs as possible in the near future.
If you are not willing to join the Connection, these courses are still available but at a cost of £15 per person, for further information or to book your place please contact me on the details below.
