Regional training for coaches and manager

February 10, 2016 4:06 am

Rugby Unions from Oceania countries will have better skilled coaches, managers and executive members in the build up to the new season.

Oceania Rugby has introduced the second highest administration training program to help build capacity after signing a 3-year agreement with Oceania National Olympic Committee (ONOC).

World Rugby Training Coordinator, Talemo Waqa says they will also reach out to communities in order to develop the knowledge of the sport.

“We already have existing strengths in coaching match officials and we are using the same work force to train them up to becoming not only in contact knowledge in the causes of OSEP,but the educators sets that we have trained them previously and World Rugby is transferable.”

Waqa also says they’ve factored in the need to improve the administration of rugby at the grass roots level.

World Rugby Services Manager, Bruce Cook says this is the first programme of its kind in the region.

The training session for coaches, managers and executive members ends tomorrow at Tanoa Hotel in Nadi.
