Congratulations to all participants on taking part in the Level 1 coaching course which was held at the Western Suburbs Magpies Office on 17th, 19th, 24th, 26th May 2010.
The course was run by Wests Development officer Harvey Howard over 4 nights to accredit junior rugby league coaches in the local competitions, throughout the course a number of practical and theory exercises were practiced to ensure junior coaches have up to date knowledge with the game for our young stars of the future. Two special guests attended the course with former NRL referee Barry Ruttle explaining the rules and changes in the game of rugby league and Wests Magpies NSW State Cup Conditioner Mick Sterli helping with coaching drills and key areas of hydration for our young players.
Big thank you goes out to Harvey Howard, our coaches and staff who helped put this course together and a massive thank you to Barry Ruttle and Mick Sterli for giving their knowledge and experience to our junior coaches.
