Transition Through Rugby

Transition Through Rugby course

The aim of the course is to support military service men and women through the sport of rugby. Players provide professional expertise guidance and mentoring to help develop core life skills, teamwork, a greater depth and knowledge of the sport.

The course is open to any serving or former member of the armed forces, irrelevant of rank and service background.  On completion of the course the individual will be qualified to apply the principles of safe and effective management, coach players of differing age groups and fully integrate within a local rugby club.

The R4H course is founded upon the RFU core values of teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline, and sportsmanship which will also provide them with the opportunity to complete the RFU courses Rugby Ready, Scrum Factory, UKCC Level 1 or UKCC Level 2.  Rugby For Heroes has been working with the wider rugby community and professional player network since 2011 when the charity was first formed to raise funds, awareness and support for service leavers who are making the sometimes difficult transition from military to civilian life.

Growing the course

As a charity, we are always looking to grow and improve the support we are able to offer those who attend our Transition Through Rugby course.

We recognise the importance of providing mental health support specific to the needs of our servicemen and women and rugby is the foundation for this.

Our Transition Through Rugby course brings together likeminded people in a safe and supportive environment. The camaraderie experienced on the rugby pitch is brought to the course and we have a network of specialists on hand to support the charity and its course attendees as required.
