USWRF-WRCRA Horizons Initiative
Building the Next Generation of Coaches and Referees “Crouch, bind, se….mmmph…” Projecting an authoritative voice through a mask was just...
The Old Man, the newsletter of the Ohio State University Men’s Rugby club announced the formation of the Ohio State women’s team. Note the graphic illustration of a female player.
The Tube and the Pitch, two different Ohio State Women’s team newsletters from 1977 show the grassroots organizing, bawdy nature of women’s rugby at the time.
The Horizons Initiative seeks to strategically increase the numbers of women coaches and referees in the U.S. by funding certification courses for women. In addition to regular Zoom meetings and course certification, the program builds support systems throughout the women’s rugby community for participants and leverages our network to connect participants to a range of coaching and refereeing opportunities.
As part of the Horizons Initiative, WRCRA will:
Host an annual online seminar for participants explaining coach/referee education pathways, and career opportunities.
Partner with USA Rugby & World Rugby programs to host regional World Rugby Coach and/or Referee certifications yearly.
Pay course fees for Horizon participants
Waive registration fees for Annual WRCRA Conference for Horizons Initiative participants
Applicants must be a WRCRA member to be eligible. Applications will be available soon!
