positions would ideally suit an already qualified coach, or a retired player looking to get into
coaching. The club will fully support them in any qualifications or courses that they wish to
undertake to ensure their success in the role.
Coaches will be responsible for leading coaching sessions for their respective teams, with an emphasis on player development to maximise players potential as well as devising a player development plan to ensure player progression. You will demonstrate excellent

Training takes place at Liberton Rugby Club, 1 Double Hedges Road, on Tuesday and
