In January 2016, Athlete Assessments’ Bo Hanson once again presented at the Australian Rugby Union (ARU) Level 3 Coaching Course where the Athlete Assessments CoachDISC Profile is utilised as part of the program.

The goal of the program is to provide education and training to Coaches working in environments that engage with professional athletes in their rugby programs.

CoachDISC Profiles, together with the theory and application of DISC, are used heavily throughout the course and they are an invaluable tool when developing Coaches at this level.

Organisers said “Athlete Assessments’ Bo Hanson adds value to the course through expert delivery of information in an area that complements and integrates with the ARU coaching developing approach.”

Bo Hanson spoke of DISC Profiling, understanding your coaching style, and understanding your players and how to coach them in a way that best suits them and the situation.

Athlete Assessments have been involved with the ARU Level 3 Coaching Program for the past four years.
