NZRL coaches rise to next level

Six rugby league coaches have been included in this year's 2014 Performance Coach Advance programme.

About 100 coaches have been selected by Sport NZ across six regions in an effort to improve the level of coaching for pre-elite 15-21-year-old athletes in 26 targeted sports.

The rugby league mentors are NZ Residents 18's head coach Tom Ball (Canterbury) and assistant Moehewa Armstrong (Bay of Plenty), Otago Whalers coach Dave Broughton (Otago), Waikato Sportsforce development officer Gary Peachem, NZ Residents 16's Jeff Whittaker (Canterbury) and NZ Warriors U20 assistant Kelvin Wright (Auckland).

Those selected for the programme must be in a current coaching role or show potential and commitment to self-development.

This inaugural intake will run for 10 months, learning generic coaching philosophies from international presenters like Australia skill acquisition researcher Damian Farrow.

"Well done to those coach that were accepted into this programme," says NZ Rugby League coaching manager Dean Watkins.

"We look forward to hearing all about the programme next time we catch up and also hope to utilise their experiences to assist in the development of our community coaches."
