What our Coaches are saying:

Cannot recommend the programme enough

---Coach James---

I took up coaching for Rugger rascals about 5 years ago, as a PT and fitness instructor I wanted to be more involved in encouraging children to enjoy sport as this is where the fundamental love begins. I really enjoy seeing the kids progress and grow as individuals and cannot recommend the programme enough to potential coaches.

Asked about becoming a coach and it all flowed from there.

---Coach Pieter---

I played rugby myself from 6 yrs old and I really wanted to take my son to some rugby classes. After attending Rugger Rascals classes for a couple of years with my eldest son I asked about becoming a coach and it all flowed from there. After my training I took over one of the sites that Rugger rascals runs in Cobham and have been there 4 years now, I love the classes and seeing the children progress and enjoy my weekends teaching.

Rugger Rascals has provided a great environment for me

---Danni---

I joined Rugger Rascals as I really enjoy working with children in sporting activities. I am currently working as a PE coach in a primary school and I am also studying to be a personal trainer. Rugger Rascals has provided a great environment for me to work in and offers me the opportunity to work with a good mix of age groups and abilities that I could not otherwise get the experience in. The coaches are great and I really enjoy taking the classes seeing the kids progress each week.

The standard of coaching at Rugger rascals has been very high

---Graeme---

I played rugby for 25 years and thought that coaching would be a great next step for me. The standard of coaching at Rugger rascals has been very high but more importantly for me the sessions are fun for both the kids and the parents and you can see how much everyone loves the classes. ---Graeme---

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • After I qualify can I use the Rugger Rascals name and logo?

    Graduates of our training can use our licensed ‘Rugger Rascals Instructor’ logo to show that they are a licensed Rugger Rascals coach and can also list their details as a coach on our main website and purchase branded kit for social media advertising for the duration of their license (12 months included in training fee then renewable at a cost of £150 per year). Doing so reflects that you are an individual coach or business that has trained through our rugby program and is licensed to deliver its contents. You are not permitted to imply any commercial relationship with Rugger Rascals.

  • What qualifications do I need to teach preschool rugby?

    To be able to teach preschool sports you need quality training, professional liability insurance and in most countries, you are required to hold a basic first aid certificate. We also advise that you comply with regulations in your specific country about getting police vetted before instructing preschool sports classes. With our Rugger Rascals Instructor Training certificate, you will be able to obtain professional liability insurance. To gain the certificate you are required to complete the course and each of the questions at the end of every module. On completion of these steps you will receive a Rugger Rascals Online Training certificate.

  • What is the earning potential for running my own preschool rugby classes?

    There is excellent earning potentially in running your own preschool rugby classes. Classes are low cost to set up and can be delivered in preschools and nurseries in addition to private classes in venues such as gyms, sports clubs and public halls. By charging per child per class you are able to build up the profitability of each class by increasing class numbers, or you can charge a higher hourly rate for one-to-one coaching. You can also charge preschools or nurseries a set session charge. Advice or what to charge is included in the Rugger Rascals Instructor training course.

  • Do I need to purchase any equipment to run my preschool rugby classes?

    Yes. We provide a full and basic kit list within the training course which lists the minimum items you will need to get started as well as the more comprehensive kit list for all our games.

  • Do I need insurance to teach preschool sports?

    Yes. To teach preschool sports professionally, in most countries you will need professional liability insurance. Most schools or venues will ask you for a copy of your professional liability insurance certificate. For U.K based coaches we recommend using Insure4sport who are specialist sports insurers.

  • What age group does the course equip me to teach?

    Our Rugger Rascals Instructor Training Course equips you to teach preschool children from 18 months to 5 years old.

  • Do I need any prior qualifications to take the course?

    No prior qualifications are required; however, you must have the energy, fitness and enthusiasm to teach preschool sports. To gain insurance to coach you will need to be over the age of 18.

Yes, I’m ready to become a preschool rugby coach and I confirm I am over 18 years of age.
