SMART RUGBY

Smart Rugby is the Australian Rugby Union’s flagship free online eCourse for building coach and match official understanding of safety considerations both on and off the field.
Over 20,000 coaches and match officials in Australia receive their Smart Rugby safety qualification each year. Their dedication helps to make our game safer and more enjoyable to play.
There are three Smart Rugby modules designed to help you build your understanding of the theory and application of Smart Rugby principles:

  1. Introduction to Smart Rugby
  2. Playing Smart – Tackle, Ruck and Maul
  3. Playing Smart – Set Pieces

The Introduction to Smart Rugby module provides up-to-date information on your due diligence and code of conduct responsibilities as well as common injury and injury prevention measures you need to be familiar with if you’re involved in the game. This includes ARU’s serious injury and concussion management protocols. You’ll hear from coaches, match officials, players and club officials about what Smart Rugby means to their role.

The two Playing Smart modules concentrate on the contact aspects of the Rugby game and provide best practice recommendations for ensuring injuries are prevented or otherwise safely managed.


Course Details

This is an online course with interactive elements and assessments throughout.
MINIMUM AGE: 13 years old.

You must complete all three modules and pass all the assessments in order to receive your Smart Rugby accreditation.

The Smart Rugby course objectives are to:

  • Promote player safety through education, protocols and information
  • Teach correct technique to improve player standards and safety
  • Ensure player participation, so that players from all backgrounds, male and female, feel welcomed and enjoy their participation in rugby
  • Encourage player participation through a safer environment, on and off the field
