Call for Contributors!

I've been MIA for a little while, and decided that perhaps the best way to contribute to the coaching dialog here in the USA would be to open this blog to other coaches from around the community.

So how about it? Let's take this from "Lisa's blog" to a real, bonefide, mult-voice dialog.

I'd love to get a handful of regular contributors representing the various age/division/gender groups in the community - mens, women's, high school, college, D1, D2, etc etc.

2009 will undoubtedly be a very exciting year for rugby coaches here in the US ... just a few things coming down the pipe on the coaching side that I'm aware of:

USAR/IRB Advanced Coaching Course part 2 in Atlanta, February
USA Rugby Coach Development workshops all winter
IRANZ High Performance Coaching course in Glendale
Queensland University Coaching workshops
USA 7s and World Cup 7s (go USA!!)
Women's Territorial Season
Women's Superleage possibilities
Women's National Team camp in Feb - u20s, USA A, USA
Women's National Team USA and USA A matches with Canada this summer
Elite Coach Development Program attachment opportunities
a new MARFU Women's Senior Side coach (congrats Lance!!)

Anyone interested in being a contributor, just shoot me an email and let's get started!
