Other Upcoming RugbySmart Online Workshops

We’ve had a large number of coaches and referees complete their RugbySmart and Small Blacks courses which it’s fantastic, however there are still many who haven’t yet done so. While we are still encouraging your PU to continue to offer in-person RugbySmart workshops, we’ll also be offering two additional RugbySmart Online Workshops – on Wednesday 18th and Sunday 29th May – to ensure we get as many coaches and referees ‘fully registered’.

You can find registration links to the webinars at the link below. And attached please find a social media tile you can use on your channels to promote these workshops. As with the first four, we will send through a list of attendees so you can mark these people as having completed the practical component.
