Distribution – CB coaching lead, Referee Society Training Officer
I hope my email finds you safe and well.
This week we have released our training programme for August – November. This includes England Rugby Coaching and Refereeing awards, principles of scrummage, Kids First Contact and Kids First Tag. These courses are all available to book online. The attached guide, England Rugby Training Courses 22/23, is an excellent resource which we’d like CBs/Societies to add to websites as a first port of call for volunteers looking to engage in training. The guide provides information on all our resources, face to face and online and gives clear instruction on how to search and book.
Our primary means of promotion is via social media – we always try to tag in local CBs, societies and host venues where possible. By sharing the post or liking them it then widens the reach so please continue to support these posts and pages and follow if not already doing so. We will also, at times leading up to courses, use GMS to contact club volunteers direct.
Finally, a number of CBs and Societies have investigated the use of voucher codes to support volunteers. We no longer accept group booking or third-party payments for individuals – codes are a great way to bulk buy and then distribute to the game. The guides below provide information on how the CB/Society can buy these and allocate them against an individual and then how the individual uses them once assigned. If interested, please take some time to follow the guides and share with anyone you are supplying them to.
