FIRFL Rugby League Coaching Course staged in Rome


Tyrone Sterry led the first FIRFL Italian rugby league coaching course held on 18 and 19 March at Roma V. During the course, the Italian national coach Tyrone Sterry, underlined the fundamental importance of the role of the coach, which should be the point of reference for the whole group.

The group and the team are crucial and are the basis of the success of the game. Sterry had explained that the mental approach to a coach should not be to impose from above a guideline, the skill and the ability of a leader also passes through the error and the assessment (evaluation) that the coaches offers a single player. Each episode can be beneficial therefore to the formation of a solid group that should together seek the quadrature of a circle, which ultimately guarantees results. The group aside from the theoretical section for the course, were shown the various stages of rugby league play and the technical approach to the games through practical demonstrations and drills. The 9 new coaches were highly appreciated of the work offered by the coach and will seek to develop the game strategies outlined above. The two-day event was attended by the following rugby league clubs: Roma V (Coppa Italia), Rugby Roma Club (Development), Portaportese Rugby Roma 2000 (Development), Tivoli Rugby (Development), Viterbo Rugby (Development), and Usag Rugby (Coppa Italia).

On the second day, Tyrone Sterry held a special training session dedicated to Under-10 and Under-8 young rugby players, which participated in rugby league for the first time.

FIRFL Coaching Course: Second Stage held in Sicily

The national rugby league coach Tyron Sterry, has completed a two-day course in Catania on the island of Sicily. There was so much enthusiasm among the prospective coaches and trainers that accompanied this stage with a twinning between the Mediterranean warmth and solidity. Tino Magri, assistant national coach and Rectores Belpasso President stated: "The course as well as striking has been very constructive, a committed person that has given us the Anglo-Saxon mentality that we were missing. We immediately adopted Sterry, and you can see already the initial results. The boys were very excited and have understood the working philosophy. The difference lies in the pace and in the quality. The most important aspect - concludes Magrì - is to participate in training athletes and offer every aspect as a challenge. We must make it clear that there are no wrong choices; there are choices and choices not made. So you give importance to the player on the pitch.” The two day course also held a player development session for interest Sicilian based players with Tyron Sterry.
