Community Coach of the Year Nominees

The Australian Rugby Union Community Coach of the Year Award (CCOTY) recognises the dedicated coaches who give up so much of their time to mentor our players and teach the importance of teamwork, sportsmanship and the skills of our great game. Without community coaches like these our Wallabies wouldn't be where they are today.

The winner will receive the Geoff “Bunter” Shaw Community Coach Award at the Rugby Australia Awards night later this year. As part of this great night the CCOTY will have two tickets to the event and, if required, flights from the nearest major city and overnight accommodation.

All coaches must have completed a Smart Rugby accreditation which provides education and training information that aims to promote a safe and enjoyable learning environment.

Applications for the Community Coach of the Year (2017) are now open through the link below:
