We have designed the course to start at 7.00pm to hopefully ease any in-house duties that you may have in that busy 6.00-7.00pm period. We hope that this works for you.  A zoom invitation ‘link’ has been included above in blue under each respective course which all coaches, managers, referees, and support staff from the designated clubs must click on to attend the meeting. This is a compulsory course for all people in the roles mentioned, and as per normal, all attendees will be ticked off by their delegates and people who are absent will be noted.

 Other Information:

 ALL Small Blacks Information will be covered.

  • Kyle McLean from The Coaching Gig will also be attending via zoom and delivering a segment of the course.
  • ALL participants must register via your Junior Club Sporty Page. This MUST be done.
  • If for some reason you can’t attend your designated course, please talk to your delegates to arrange attending an alternative course. This will then filter through to the TVRFU.
