The Canterbury Crusaders; one of the best rugby clubs in the world, are visiting the US this month.  We have been exceedingly lucky to have them come up to Alaska. The  Crusaders will host a high level clinic for coaches (youth and adult) and managers at the Alaska Rugby Mountain Grounds.

This training session is both indoors and classroom and is open to all parents of rugby playing children who may want to help coach, manage, or learn more about rugby.  It is open to all players who are in middle school and older, and any coach who wants to learn the inner secrets of developing a winning team plan.

The 2 day course aimed at coaches and managers (September 24th & September 25th) will not only touch on areas to help develop coaches at different levels but also discuss ways to create processes which create a good culture within your team to get the best out of your players and staff.  Crusaders' coaches Grant Keenan and Tony Flay along with Team manager Shane Fletcher will be at AKMRG (190001 Finland Drive) to lead the course.

I may have forgotten to tell you that's its sponsored and no cost to you.
