2017 CORE Legacy
Three Key Roles Posted for Local Rugby Development
Date: January 7, 2013
The CORE Board has identified three key strategic points of focus for 2013. These are believed to be the wisest ways to invest our member's dollars in support of rugby development in the Central Okanagan.
The Board believes that touch rugby offers the best opportunity for our game to be experienced by more male and female players. In the spring of 2013, we plan to introduce a U12 Touch Rugby League for grade 6 and 7 students. This will be a natural-next-step for players in the elementary league that runs in the fall for grades 4 - 6 players. A budget of $5,000 has been allocated to get the community-based touch rugby rolling. This person will also run a summer touch rugby league for adults. The CORE Board seeks one person to take on the Touch Rugby Coordinator role.
The second focus for 2013 rugby locally will be on coach/player development. It is our goal to assure that every coach has the most up-to-date skills and information to develop our local players. It is also our goal to assure that players interested in taking their game to higher levels have abundant opportunities to do so. CORE has allocated $5,000 to enable one person to attend provincial coaching workshops and bring what they learn back to local coaches. This person will also coordinate Top 40 All-Star and PRC teams and assure our top players are well know by provincial and national selectors. The CORE Board seeks one person to take on the Rugby Excellence Coordinator role.
Perhaps the most important focus for 2013 is the development of a Team Manager's Network in the region. CORE has allocated $5,000 in 2013 to train a parent or volunteer manager for every sevens and 15's team in the region. The manager will have four key roles - (a) Player Safety - all managers will have entry level first aid training, paid for by CORE, (b) Field Readiness - managers will organize a team to get fields game ready, (c) Player Registration - all players will register for rugby, and (d) Team Communications - managers will be trained to use the CORE website to keep local enthusiasts up-to-date on team achievements. They'll also communicate with families about local rugby opportunities. The CORE Board seeks one person to take on the Rugby Manager's Network Coordinator role.
All role positions are posted in '2013 - Three Key Roles' attachment below. Enthusiasts interested in any position should email Doug Manning an indication of your interest on or before January 12th.
