Welcome to the World Rugby Strength & Conditioning Pre-Level 1 online course

This course is designed to provide beginner Strength and Conditioning coaches with a basic knowledge and understanding and a foundation of practical skills. This in turn will facilitate coaches to prepare players more thoroughly to play Rugby Union. This course links directly to the physical conditioning element of the ‘Rugby Ready’ programme.

In the course, we include six Multiple Choice Questionnaires (MCQs). The MCQ is a short quiz really. It consists of six questions that all relate to the content described within each module. We have one MCQ placed at the end of each module. The MCQs serve a key purpose. They are intended to help you assess how well you understood the module. When you have answered all the questions, you will then be given feedback as to your knowledge of the preceding content.

Once you have completed the MCQ and posted it, you will receive feedback on the accuracy of your choices. Good luck and enjoy the challenge.
