Rugby

Welcome to my Coaching Rugby resource page.  Here you can find rugby (skills and fitness) drills that I find useful.
My Background:  Currently I have my USA Rugby Level 200 Certification.  I was Head Coach of The Univ. of TN Women’s Rugby Club from Fall 2010 until Spring Season 2012.  During Fall 2010 and Spring 2011, their record was 8(w)-3(l).  Not too bad for a team with 95% rookies.
Also during that Fall Season of 2011, I temporarily began coaching my own team, Knoxville Minx, until a new coach was found.
After accepting a job with the Navy, I began coaching a co-ed team onboard the USS John C Stennis for 4.5 months.  During 1 port stop, the Singapore Wanderers Rugby Team graciously hosted us for a rugby clinic and co-ed scrimmage.
After deployment, I relocated to Bremerton, Washington in the Summer of 2013, where I began playing for the Tacoma Siren’s Women’s Rugby Club.  After playing for 1 Fall Season I became a player-coach for the team in the Spring Season of 2014 up until my relocation to Norfolk, VA in October 2014.  My current team is the Norfolk Storm Women’s Rugby Club. #letswhipupastorm
