The $40 early registration fee will be in effect for on-site registrants for the Summit Saturday to encourage our current coaches to take this opportunity for PDCs and to remain active.
Certified coaches are responsible for annually maintaining their active coaching status with USAR. Every team requires an active coach in order to be considered in compliance and compete in the FRU. Non-compliant teams will not be assigned referees. You can maintain “active” status by annually completing 10 Professional Development Credits (PDCs). The FRU has made this easy for its’ coaches by offering an annual Development Summit. On Saturday, we offer an afternoon session to acquire 10 PDCs, including information on Rugby Strength and Conditioning by Matt Mallard and Continuity of Play by Paul Vercoe from USA Rugby. These are the only PDCs we will be offering in Florida for the year, and is only the second year we have hosted this summit and offered PDC units through the FRU’s administration. On Sunday we offer Level 200 coach certification. Please see this page for more details and to register:
