The game planning course…has provided me with a sound foundation for my career. As a coach I fully endorse the work of Lee Smith

Sir Graham Henry

“The course provides coaches with sound coaching and analytical methods to optimise team performance. This has been due to Lee Smith’s leadership, open mindedness and his continual drive to improve. I recommend the course as a sound foundation for all coaches who have high performance coaching aspirations.”

Murray Deaker

“Few people have the rugby knowledge to match that of Lee Smith. His methods are practical, direct, detailed, tried, and tested. He is a coach and rugby man with one agenda only – he loves the game and wants others to share that love.”

Michael Luke

Regional Training Coordinator, IRB

“Lee is widely respected as an authority on the game at all levels, including the current national and international scene. This reputation is based on his excellent skills in performance analysis and a thorough understanding of the principles of the game.”

Chris Gibbes

Former Waikato Coach, current coach for Georgia in the European Cup

“The course exposed me to a new and greater level of planning and preparation. The course content and process provides in-depth opportunities to develop you as a coach and therefore provide a higher quality outcome and experience for the players. I believe this course is an essential step in the development of any aspiring high performance coach.”
