The Coach Education programme was launched last week with a session entitled 'An Extended Warm-up, the principles of movement literacy' presented by Academy athletic performance manager Kevin Mannion, revealing the work done in the Academy to prepare players to play.
More than 40 coaches from clubs and schools attended the opening session and returned to their teams with ideas on how to progress and integrate into their own sessions in the new season.
The second session is called “Catch & Pass, how to beat a defender” and will be based at Welford Road on Wednesday, October 9, with Askew presenting his ideas on attack.
Askew is a former head coach of England Under-19s, an RFU and IRB Level 3 Coach Educator and worked as a National Academy Skills Coach before joining Tigers.
Coach Education sessions are aimed at helping coaches get the most out of their players at any level, including seniors, taking the successful programmes from the Tigers Academy to the clubs.
