Coaching Certification

The US Assocation of Rugby League, Inc. (USARL) a member of the RLIF/RLEF, is committed to Coach Education and Training for the Sport of Rugby League in the USA.

As the NGB, USARL administrators are actively consulting with the RLEF/RFL and NRL to provide pathways to coach education, training and accreditation. Those who wish to coach Rugby League in the USA should be accredited by the USARL.

We are researching best practice in conducting NRL Level 1 Coaching Courses under USARL accreditation via application on the USARL website (TBD).

USARL Coach candidates will be required to complete the following:

  • Online modules via NRL Coaching Website
  • Participate as a “coach-in-practice” for a 12-month period
  • Finalize the course by assessment to be certified as a USARL Level 1 Coach. 

We are also communicating with the RFL to provide Coach Tutor Courses so those who become qualified can then deliver the RFL Level 1 Coaching Course in the USA on behalf of the USARL.  

We encourage you to visit the NRL’s Home of Coach Education website (CLICK HERE) and the RFL’s Coach website (CLICK HERE), both offer a range of online coaching resources for different levels of the game.

USARL Coaching Course dates and online access details to follow soon.
