Community Rugby Coaches are employed by the RFU across the country and in Berkshire we have two CRCs. Our Rugby Development Officer, Dan Whiteman, is their line manager.
Dan Whiteman works with David Edwards, Berkshire County RFU Player Development Chairman to target these resources to assist the development of rugby in the county.
Some of the activity takes place in schools, colleges and unversities and some in clubs.
In addition, the Premiership Rugby clubs have community rugby coaches who perform a similar function. It is the responsibility of clubs and schools to build relationships with these organisations to get their coaching support. We are lucky in that we have London irish, Wasps and Harlequins on our doorstep.
