2021 – “If you fail to prepare, you’re prepared to fail.” – Mark Spitz

Next Gen Rugby Coaching has been under the leadership of Michael Broad since 2017. Michael took over from Dan McKellar who led the company with distinction and diligence since 2013. Next Gen Rugby Coaching would like to thank all players, parents, clubs and schools who have supported the work of our professional staff in delivering a rugby product that has been so positively reinforced.

To kick off 2021, Next Gen Rugby Coaching will hold its annual Preseason Clinic at Riverside Rugby Club on consecutive Sundays (February 14 and 21). For more information regarding this clinic, please visit the Program page (Clinics) on the web site.

Next Gen Rugby Coaching will hold its first Easter coaching clinic at St. Peter’s Lutheran College Indooroopilly (April 7, 8 & 9), followed by its annual clinic which will be at the wonderful facilities of Brothers Rugby Club (April 12, 13 & 14).

Next Gen Rugby Coaching will hold its only clinic in the June/July holidays at Brothers Rugby Club(June 28, 29 & 30). In 2019 we had 188 players attend this clinic and the outcomes and vibe at the clinic was extraordinary.

For the very first time, Next Gen Rugby Coaching will run a Rugby Development Academy over 3 days in early December 2021. This clinic will have limited places available (30) for high level players aged 14 – 17 and will be facilitated by professional coaches from the Mitre 10 Cup competition in New Zealand.

One of the most enjoyable and rewarding programs that Next Gen Rugby Coaching offers is the One on One specialist coaching. Players of all ages and ability levels have taken the opportunity to avail themselves to the quality coaching that the company offers. Some players have joined forces to provide an even more challenging training environment by having 2/3 players working together. It is obvious that the parents of these children are convinced of the benefits of allowing their children to work with our team which is passionate about passing on our many years of experience and knowledge at the grassroots level as well as the elite level. The young players using the 1 on 1 sessions start to develop skills and training habits at a young age that we feel are crucial in their rugby formation. Despite the difficulties of 2020, it was terrific to be able to continue to assist so many through our 1 on 1 program (including a number of Touch Football, Oztag and Rugby League players) with their running, agility, evasion and passing skills – an area of coaching that is expanding rapidly.

Next Gen Rugby Coaching is a company that provides quality, experienced adult coaching for rugby players and coaches of all levels. Whether you are the coach of the local junior Under 8s team that requires more coaching tools and resources; a player/coach who wants to improve or an aspiring young player wanting to play the game at the highest level, Next Gen Rugby Coaching is here to help.
