The AERL has qualified eight new coaches from the Andalusian region after a successful level one course at Lupión City Hall In the Jaén region, ahead of the new domestic season which launches in April.
Candidates from three clubs, Andújar, Baeza and Huelva, and organised in association with ARLA – Rugby League Association of Andalucía – took part.
RLEF coach educator in the region Aitor Dàvila commented: “The course has been very productive for the candidates and they will continue to develop our sport in the region. All have successfully passed and now have considerable knowledge to take to their clubs to continue improving the standard.”
The Spanish national competition will begin with two conferences, in Levante (Valencian Region) and South (Andalucía) with a minimum of four teams in each. The AERL is working to launch a similar conference in Madrid.
