Chris Brown Mens 7's Assistant Coach at USA Rugby
About Chris Brown
I worked with and mentored Chris Brown for 3 months in Namibia’s build up to RWC, 2011. Chris has all the qualities you would look for in a strength and conditioning coach. As a practical coach he is one of the best young coaches I have seen and this is matched with excellent people skills. Players have the tendency to warm to Chris quickly, giving him immediate rapport and trust within the squad. Additionally, Chris ‘walks the talk’ which also aids the respect he gets from players. Chris also has vast technical and tactical knowledge of rugby, which will become obvious after 5 minutes of conversation with him. This separates him from most other conditioning coaches and is a huge positive in bridging the gap between rugby and conditioning in any program. Chris has a burning ambition to be the best and I would recommend him to any professional organisation.
