Coaches and Referees

The primary aim of BokSmart is to provide rugby coaches, referees, players, and administrators with the correct knowledge, skills, and leadership abilities to ensure that safety and best practice principles are incorporated into all aspects of contact rugby in South Africa. The program not only focuses on these basic principles, but also aims to assist in growing the game at grassroots level, and provide everyone in South Africa with the opportunity of being educated to play rugby the Smart way. BokSmart supports and demonstrates the concept that the safest best practice techniques in the game are also the most effective from a performance perspective. Ultimately, by instilling this mindset and providing this practical training resource, rugby will evolve in South Africa and become more appealing to everyone, and in the process improve the safety of its players on the field.
