The Coach Mentor Program

All content and courses are run by Lee Addison, who was awarded Level 3 High Performance Coach status in 2012 and has a Masters Degree in coaching!  

You can listen to Lee weekly on the Rugby League Coach Podcast – available now on Spotify, Apple, Google Pods and many others!

Lee Addison has coached junior and senior rugby league on both sides of the world at club, regional, state and international level and achieved many successes in terms of player development and results wherever he has gone.

Lee  was Head Coach of Poland, and coached them to victory in the Emerging Nations World Trophy in October 2018, an undefeated campaign against all odds.  After coaching them to a first ever Test win on home soil in September 2019, his Test coaching record is now 6 from 6 (100%)

Addison has also been a coach at two NRL clubs (Manly Sea Eagles and Penrith Panthers), at two World Cups with Ireland in 2008 and the USA in 2013 and two high profile RL schools in Australia (St Gregory’s Campbelltown and Ipswich State High School).  He was most recently the Head Coach of Rugby League at Mabel Park State High School in Queensland and brought them to the elite division alongside Ipswich and other elite high schools.

His coaching career prior to that included stints as England Universities coach, England Lionhearts (Amateurs) England Under 21 Women and as a regular employee of the English Rugby Football League on their High Performance Regional and National Camps.

Born and raised in England, but based in Australia since 2007, Addison has coached many players that are now playing in the English Super League or the NRL in Australia.  There is now rarely an NRL game takes place without at least one of his ex-players featuring in it.

He gained his Level 3 High Performance Coaching Certificate in 2012, and also has a Masters Degree (MEd) in Coach Education which he studied for at Loughborough (UK) and Sydney (Aus) Universities. One of his biggest passions is studying coaches and leaders from all around the world and the art of coaching and leadership, both inside and outside of sport.

2024 is his 26th year of coaching.  His coaching journey has taken him through every single level of the game, from grassroots all the way through to elite.  On that journey he has coached boys and men’s teams, girls and women’s, school and university teams and many rep sides from regional to international level. To that end Lee is passionate about helping people at all levels of the game and helping the game grow.
