The Sevens course is an introduction to the basics of coaching the game of Rugby Sevens derived from USA Rugby and the International Rugby Board (IRB). The course focuses on the key principles of attack and defense within the Sevens game as well as helps differentiate the differences between the 15’s and 7’s game. There is video analysis, group exercises, practice planning and practical implementation. The focus for the coaches is being able to implement the fundamentals of the game to players at all levels.
The one-day course costs $80 before April 22 and $100 after. This course is limited to forty participants and will be followed by a social event on Austin’s historic West 6th Street.
