Phil Smith website

Heriot’s Rugby is delighted to announce that Heriot’s Head Coach Phil Smith has completed UKCC Level 4 coaching certificate.

This first enrolment in Scotland saw eight coaches from professional, BT Premiership and national age-grade sides undertake the two-year qualification, as Scottish Rugby endeavours to better nurture and increase the standard of Scotland’s performance coaches.

“The United Kingdom Coaching Certificate (UKCC) Level 4 aims to develop visionary, outstanding and knowledgeable decision makers, who can advance their own and others learning and impact on performance to maintain momentum and progression towards their goals.”

Having attended a number of workshops, undergone regular coaching assessment, given presentations and completed detailed assignments this is a hugely significant step to further the progression of Scottish coaches.

Congratulations also go to:

Kenny Murray (Glasgow Warriors), Stevie Scott (Edinburgh Rugby), Ben Fisher (BT Sport Scottish Rugby Academy, Edinburgh Skills Coach, Boroughmuir and Scotland under-18,), Stevie Lawrie (Watsonians and Scotland under-16) and Andrew Hall (Hong Kong), the former Scotland second-row.
