Register as a Coach

Registering annually as a coach is the first and most important step of your coaching career.. All players, non-playing members, and match officials are required to register for coverage under the Rugby Australia National Insurance Scheme. Registered coaches will receive support from RA and our Member Unions based on their accreditation profile.

All coaches from U8 and above must hold this accreditation to coach.
