Learn from the very best

UR7s prides itself on young, vibrant coaches that are either still playing or recently retired sharing their knowledge and expertise in a way that all ages can relate too.

We don’t believe in coaches just standing on the sidelines and shouting. We have a passion for the sport and a passion to take part at all times, the young coaches are very hands on in sharing how they got to the very top either as a player or now as a coach.
