Doing sport has increased over recent decades and as a result sport now has great social, educational and political significance. Rugby is a sport known for its ability to convey values and promote individual abilities. Some studies suggest that this sport is not being taught appropriately by federations and in schools. Accordingly, there is a need to examine and find out more about the people in charge of teaching rugby, namely coaches. This study is designed to provide greater understanding of the situation on the ground in coaching this sport by studying training in Cadiz province. To that end research was carried out using a quantitative methodology by means of a questionnaire to obtain data concerning two dimensions: teaching experience and initial training. Once the process of developing the instrument had been completed, it was administered to 50 male and female coaches in Cadiz province using non-probabilistic sampling. Following descriptive and correlation analysis, the main results enable us among other things to conclude that the participating rugby coaches in Cadiz province do not have sufficient experience or initial training to perform their work.
