Female Coaches Leadership Programme – Deadline Extended

Female Coaches Leadership Programme – Deadline Extended

Any female coaches wanting to join the RFL’s Leadership and Performance Programme for 2022-23 have another two weeks to submit their applications.

The first graduates of the Female Leadership and Performance programme have recently completed the 12-month course, and several of them are already reaping the benefits with positions on the Girls Talent Hubs, the Betfred Women’s Super League, Under-19s teams and Championship / League One.

Richard Tunningley, the RFL Coach Education Manager, said: “The Female Leadership and Performance Programme has more than passed our expectations with this first cohort.

“The coaches involved have all developed over this past 12 months and have really contributed to help each other and displayed the passion about being a Female Coach in Rugby League.

“I know many will go on to coach on international pathways, clubs’ performance pathways either male or female, as well as other key roles such as Coach Educators or Developers.”

The closing date for applications for the 2022 – 2023 Female Leadership Programme has been extended until Friday 15th July.
