IRFU "Active Coach Badge"
The IRFU 'Active Coach Badge' course is intended to provide coaches who have achieved the IRFU Youth Coach or Senior Coach Award(s), with ongoing continuing professional development ('CPD'), i.e. information and opportunities to ensure that learning and development of your coaching skills continue throughout the season.
All Youth and Senior coaches with completed IRFU coaching awards must also hold the IRFU Active Coach Badge to be considered 'qualified' in any particular season.
Therefore, although your coaching award does not expire, you must gain the Bronze Active Coach Badge as a minimum each year you are actively coaching a team.
This Bronze Badge may be achieved by simply selecting this season's mandatory online module below, by which you will be enrolled in the course to complete the module.
Additional online modules and/or face-to-face workshops delivered by your Branch Coach Development Office will be visible within the course once you've completed the Bronze Badge, allowing you to progress to the Silver and Gold Badges if you so wish.
