About Running Rugby 

Running Rugby is designed to encourage club administrators to meet and learn with other club officials who are utilising best practice methods and discuss their club's issues, opportunities and practices.

This training course provides administrators with the basic skills required to run their clubs more efficiently. The DVD coinsides with the Club Best Practice Manual, which should be referenced where applicable. A large portion of the learning will come from discussions run by the facilitator based on the key points from the DVD.

Who Should Attend

There is no requirement for club administrators to attend this session, however the New Zealand Rugby Union firmly believes that by attending club administrators will benefit greatly and this will benefit their club by creating:

  • Less stressful roles
  • More time and a greater focus on important club issues
  • A better managed club
  • Interaction with other Club Administrators and a support network

What are the Pre-requisites 

You must be a registered member of a rugby club affiliated to the New Zealand Rugby Union.

How long is the Course

The course usually lasts no longer than two hours.
