This is a high level appointment providing guidance and an overview rather than an operational role. Adam is the son of founder and Life President Mike Lubbock who preceded Adam as Head of Games at Woodbridge School.
In the very near future we will be seeking an audit of all coaches operating – with a keen emphasis on our fantastic Junior coaches to make sure we are:
- Providing opportunities for our coaches to develop through courses from the RFU and mentoring from the club
- Operating with a clear focus on meeting Safeguarding best practice
- Continuing to build a common platform of coaching style that will aid the transition from Junior to Senior rugby
- Delivering coaching that is consistent with the core values of the RFU.
To help deliver this it is intended that Adam along with Director of Rugby Simon Bennett will attend the club on a Sunday morning once a month. The intention is to give coaches an opportunity to talk directly with Adam prior to training commencing and then we will be about to offer advice “in the field”.
We will ensure that the date each month will allow us to be in attendance on alternate months for the Mini Section and the following month the Youth section. We hope that Chrissie Gordon will complete this team.
It will be a clear aim to try and take advantage of Laurence’s knowledge (and his team ) to guest on an occasional Sunday and look to garner support from Senior players .
