2 More RFU Accredited Coach Eductors for the Navy

WO Ian Smith (HMS Heron) pictured and CPO Simon Burns (HMS MIDDLETON) have recently gained accreditation from the RFU as Coach Educators. Having undertaken the RFU Coach Educators course in Jul 2007, Ian & Simon have supported the RNRU's coaching development programme in between deployments to the Untied States and the Arabian Gulf respectively. Navy stalwart Simon says 'I've been involved as a player for the past fifteen years, it is really rewarding to put something back into the community game; delivering on these RFU courses allows me to pass some of my coaching and playing experience onto others' Level 1 & 2 courses are run by the RN RDO throughout the year. Personnel interested in attending should contact CPO Dusty Miller (dustymiller@rfu.com) or 02392 724426.
