IRFU Help Schools And Clubs Develop ‘Rugby Faculty’

IRFU Help Schools And Clubs Develop ‘Rugby Faculty’

The Irish Rugby Football Union today announced the nationwide roll-out of its ‘Rugby Faculty’ programme, after a successful trial across the four provinces last season.

The Rugby Faculty provides schools and clubs with the tools to develop their own rugby ‘curriculum’ to help each player and coach gain the best rugby experience and training available.

While each programme will contain the same core principles, each will be unique to reflect the club or school’s vision, ambitions, resources, commitment and culture.

Michael Cunningham, IRFU Chairman of Youth Rugby, said: “Club rugby has grown larger and stronger and the Rugby Faculty provides a great opportunity for clubs and schools to benefit from a formal and organised rugby curriculum from top to bottom.”

Gerry Drennan, the Union’s Chairman of Schools Rugby, added: “Schools have the ideal infrastructure and experience to build a curriculum for rugby which will develop their players through a structured progressive programme.”
