The Rugby Coachand His Three Roles In The Management Of A Rugby Team
AbstractThe article has the purpose to present the three roles a coach plays at a rugby team: leader, manager and trainer. In his leader role, the coach has to influence the player to follow him on the way of obtaining a common goal, which is, mainly, sporting success. In the analysis of the coach’s leader role, the focus is set on his social relationships with the rugby players and the other human ressources in the rugby club, whereby the presentation of the managerial role focuses on how the coach may use the ressources in the club in order to develop a solid organization, with a powerful administrative basis. Last but not least, the article presents the differences between the training tasks and the managerial and leadership ones. For a better understanding, the principles of governance in rugby – which includes all leadership, management and training - are also presented. According to the governance principles, the coach has to use his leadership, managerial and training roles in order to influence two social groups - the players’ group and the stakeholders’ group.
