The programmes are delivered by some of the professional rugby players at Rotherham Titans, and associated staff, with significant rugby coaching experience.

The players hold the right values and act as positive role models. In terms of age and academic background the TCF coaches are in their 20’s. Many players have undertaken Sports Science or Sports Management degrees, but a significant number have come through the vocational learning route.

They all hold the relevant RFU qualifications, including safeguarding, the new safe tackle technique, Headcase – focusing on identifying concussion risks. As well as these they have up to date First Aid, individual qualifications as personal trainers, nutritionists, coaching and mentoring, and all hold full, enhanced DBS.
