England Rugby Coaches Association (ERCA)

The England Rugby Coaches Association is a community of coaches who hold a coaching qualification on their England Rugby GMS profile. Membership of the England Rugby Coaches Association (ERCA) comes with digital ERCA cards recording coaches’ details. ERCA members should ensure that their correct email address is submitted on GMS to receive full benefits.

Memberships last for one year and are retained by attending a minimum of one CPD course during that period. All coaches attending an England Rugby Coaching Award can join the association on completion of the award.

If you hold a qualification and wish to join the association simply attend an RFU CPD course to activate your membership.


Membership benefits include:

  • 15% discount at England Rugby Store
  • Exclusive range of ERCA training kit
  • There is also a monthly ERCA newsletter, with training content and advice for aspiring coaches
  • The opportunity to win VIP coaching experiences
