The Investec International Rugby Academy is known in SA for bringing together some of the greatest rugby minds on the planet, to share their knowledge with players and coaches, and enable the course participants to benefit hugely from the experience from International coaches and players. IIRASA over a period of time has brought together the likes of Sean Fitzpatric, Christian Cullen, Murray Mexted, Jeff Wilson, Phill Kearns, Corne Krige, Andre Vos to mention a few. Once again our June course boasts an impressive line-up and course participants can look forward to learning from Nick Mallet, John Mitchell, Dick Muir, John Plumtree, Johan Ackermann, Carlos Spencer and former British Lions analyst Andy Keast among others.
“We are really spoilt and honoured to have such a strong coaching line-up of International coaches this time round and I truly believe that any coach in the country will benefit from this massive opportunity to learn from some of the greatest minds around. I am personally looking forward to spending time with Nick (Mallet) as he always brings a fresh angle of coaching to any discussion.” – Dick Muir.
The June course will have 4 focus groups that will all work with and be coached by our world class presenters. The players groups will be the Intermediate Players Course (Skills development course 8 years and older), Advanced Players Course (16-18 year olds) and the Elite Players Course (18+ year olds). There will be an Advanced Coaches Course that will run in tandem with the players’ courses and these participants will workshop with all the module presenters learning the ins and outs of the latest coaching techniques, philosophies and methods.
All coaches participating in the Advanced Coaches Course will have the opportunity to do their IRB coaching level 2 as part of the course, plus be accredited if successful. The entries are limited for all courses, so do not miss out.
