For the final Junior Coaching Council of 2020, RugbyWA have invited innovative coach Jack Rolfe in to educate aspiring coaches on how to encourage proactive thinking.
Rolfe will also demonstrate the use of his "MatchPlay Cards" and how they can help coaches use them in training and games to encourage player awareness, creativity and reflection.
Rolfe has worked with several high-profile sporting organizations including Arsenal Football Club, Great Britain Hockey, Mad Dog Rugby, USA Field Hockey and Reading Football Club.
He has dedicated himself to coaching and coach education, looking at new and creative ways to help players reach their full potential.
With RugbyWA looking to build a larger base of pro-active coaches around the state the use of these cards could be imperative in getting more individuals thinking outside the box on how get the best out of their players explained Education Manager Dylan Parsons.
“This creative thinking is exactly what we look for in any aspiring rugby coach in WA,” Parsons said.
“To have someone who’s worked in some really professional organizations come in and educate our guys will be a really good step in getting to where we want to be.”
“We want our players to have a better understanding on how to reflect on their gameplay and using Jack’s card system could really help us enable that through our coaches.”
“I’d strongly encourage any aspiring coach to come in and join the council as this last session could be truly beneficial.”
The Coaching Council will be held on Wednesday, November 11 at 6:00pm AWST at RugbyWA HQ.
