Coach Education Programme

After consultation with a number of Saracens partner clubs and partner schools, Saracens have identified the need and demand for access to a high quality Coach Education programme across Hertfordshire, Essex, Kent and the Barnet borough. The idea behind the programme is to conitnually provide club coaches and school teachers with increased knowledge and ideas to raise standards and participation levels of players throughout the community.

The Saracens Coach Education programme provides access to some of the best coaches in the Aviva Premiership and top tips from the coaches responsible for running the best academy coaching system in the country. Typically sessions will invole a 30 minute presentation follwed by the observation of one of our coaches taking our Elite Player Development Group for a session. In addition to this club visits from senior community staff ensure that Saracens are able to share their ideas with grass root club coaches and also porvide them with an opportunity to have a run around themselves as well!

Saracens will utilise the unique assets of Saracens coaching staff and pull upon the experience and knowledge of Saracens senior, academy and community coaches including:

  • Mark McCall
  • Paul Gustard
  • Alex Sanderson
  • Kevin Sorrell
  • Dan Vickers
  • Richard Hill
  • Joe Shaw
  • Matt Davies
  • Richard Gregg
