HERTS Coach Education Week 2012 takes place in February half-term (February 11-19) at venues around the county.

There is a full programme of courses, workshops, seminars, lectures and other events on offer.

Peter Engledow, the Herts Rugby development officer, is a level 3 rugby coach and fully supports the coach Education Week.

Engledow currently trains National League Three side Bishop’s Stortford and believes the three most important characteristics of a coach are: Understanding your players, honesty and creating a environment to allow them to grow and excel.

Of working as a coach he said: “The journey is incredible, the variety and challenges that face you each week and the lessons you learn from it and how you handle the challenges.

“Watching players develop on and off the field and seeing how a team sport can shape players lives and make a difference.”

There are of course some lows that follow and the challenge is how you and your players/team react to them.

He added: “Losing close games and how it effects your weekend can be tough to get over, but you have to bounce back, learn from it and prepare for the next week’s match.”

There are plenty of influences that can help you on your path as a coach such as the Education Week.

Engledow, who has coached for 14 years, revealed some of the people and organisations that have supported him on his career.

“As an organisation the RFU have helped me with ongoing development along with the Herts Sports Partnership and the coach development they provide,” he added.
