Wellington Rugby run a unique Rugby Development Officer programme.
This union is able to in conjunction with clubs have an RDO at each of our 14 premier club. We are the only province in New Zealand that currently do this.
Their role is to support our community game building relationships between clubs and schools, supporting coaches and volunteers in these organisations. Coach development, Player development and community development are key priorities to help our kids grow in the game
We are very lucky to have some outstanding people involved in the programme. Former All Blacks and Manu Samoan internationals.
The group is supported by the WRFU's Rugby Development Manager Womens Rugby Development Manger and Coach Education Manager in their roles.
