Following the successful delivery and review of the 2013-14 season of the ‘Leicester Tigers Developing Player Programme’, 2014-15 will see the programme expand to be delivered at nine centres across the Leicester Tigers region. The programme provides a clear and structured package of quality coaching for new and existing players between the ages of 13 and 16. As a result of the review and expansion of the programme Leicester Tigers in partnership with the RFU are looking to recruit highly dedicated and motivated coaches with the skills and attributes required to meet the needs of young players in this crucial period of their lives.

The programme is an evolution of the existing CB ‘Schools of Rugby’ and the well-established Leicester Tigers ‘Elite Player Development Group’ programme; it will seek to provide a consistent, high quality experience to encourage lifelong participation in the sport and enable those with talent to be clearly identified and find their ideal pathway, whether that is into professional rugby or lifelong participation at a level appropriate to them within their Constituent Body (CB).

If any of the qualities below sound like you then we would like to hear from you:

  • Drive and a passionate commitment to developing young players’ abilities and enhancing their lives.
  • A dedication to excellence in everything that you do.
  • A ‘go the extra mile’ attitude in your preparation and follow up.
  • The capacity to establish clear goals, create long terms development programmes based on those goals and systematically guide players towards their achievement.

If you would like to become a part of the development of the next generation of English rugby talent then please send your coaching CV and a covering letter/email to Matt Williams (Academy Development Coach at Leicester Tigers) at [email protected]
