Coaches and Officals Wanted

Ilkeston Rugby Club always wants new players to come along to our club and get involved in our sport but to be able to offer the best experience for our playing members we need more coaches and officials.

Coaching and Refereeing is a great way to keep involved with rugby, build your understanding of the game and get a real sense of achievement developing players and passing on your enthusiasm for the game.

It may seem daunting being in the middle of a pitch laying down the laws of the game or being having a sea of faces looking at you and hanging on your every word but we’ve got a great set of current coaches and referees who will support you and your own personal development.

We need Refs and Coaches NOW -next season isn’t too far away so no matter what your previous rugby experience If you’d like to get involved or learn more about the opportunities available please contact
