Coaching/Volunteering Opportunity – VI Rugby

Are you interested in Coaching or Volunteering for Vision Impaired Rugby?

The IRFU and Vision Sports Ireland are delighted to be supported by The Change Foundation and Old Wesley R.F.C to bring Vision Impaired Rugby to Ireland for the very first time. Vision Impaired (VI) Rugby was established by The Change Foundation in the UK in 2016, with teams already in New Zealand and Japan the aim is to now grow the game across the world.

The ambition of the IRFU and Vision Sports Ireland is to establish a Irish Vision Impaired Rugby Team in Ireland. Prior to establishing a programme the aim is to recruit volunteers to support the rollout.  

To support the training of volunteers a VI Rugby coaching course will be delivered by The Change Foundation UK.  The course will be 3 hours in duration, 1 hour online and 2 hours in person.

If you have an interest in coaching or volunteering, we want to hear from you.
