Coach development is one of the key priorities for NSW Rugby, and in November the organisation will host the first female-only foundation course for referees and coaches.

The course is open to women who want to develop their coaching and refereeing skills as well as men who coach female teams.

NSW Community Rugby Manager Erin Morton said it was important to highlight that development pathways are for not only for players but for coaches and support staff as well.

"We want to attract as many females into the coaching and refereeing space as we can," Morton said.

"Women's rugby is growing rapidly and part of that is to provide support staff, administrators and match officials the opportunities to learn and develop as the sport continues to grow," Morton added.

The foundation course will be facilitated by NSW Rugby's Coach Development team. The 2019 NSW Super W train-on squad will also be in attendance to give course goers a first-hand experience of what it's like to coach a women's team.

The course will run from 0900 - 1700 AEST at the home of NSW Rugby, the David Phillips Sports Complex in Daceyville on Saturday 24 November. The cost per person is $50.
