Video Analysis for Youth Rugby Coaches

Prior to the founding of BF Sports Analysis, owner, Brian Fitzpatrick worked in London Irish as Academy Analyst, honing his skills as an analyst with a primary focus on player development rather than performance at an elite underage level working with future international players such as Joe Cokanasiga and Johnny Williams and other Premiership players Ollie Hassel-Collins, Tom Parton, Matt Williams, Ben Loader, Jacob Atkins and Josh Basham to name a few.

The purpose of this course is to tie in what is effective when working full time at developing players and applying it to a youth, schools or academy background where you have such a smaller amount of time to dedicate yourself to using video and statistics.

This course focuses on making video analysis efficienteffective and enjoyable for coaches and your players alike.

You’ll learn practical skills, obtain a knowledge of softwares and equipment, match day logistical considerations, making the technical side easy so you and your players can enjoy using video to discover and learn more about our beautiful game.
